What we're about

The Southside Area Toastmasters is a collection of clubs in the Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach area that follow and uphold Toastmasters International's mission and programs. Toastmasters is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending and participating in one or more of the clubs. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. The Mission: We empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders. We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence. We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
