Do you have expertise in some area relevant to Toastmasters? You might be a perfect workshop presenter at the District 46 Annual Conference. We are seeking speakers with proven skills in areas of Communication, Leadership, or Personal growth. This is your opportunity to educate, instruct and inspire the approximately 300 attendees at the conference -- the educational workshops are a highlight of the day.

Each workshop should be 45 minutes in length, and there will be a 5 minute “wrap up” time for evaluations and final questions. You will be responsible for building any additional Q&A time you feel appropriate into your 45 minutes. The Conference Education committee will review your submission and let you know by March 31st whether your proposal has been accepted. Several alternates will also be chosen.

To apply for consideration please complete and submit the application no later than March 15, 2020. For additional information email Education Chair Penelope Boehm, DTM, PDG at or call 212-864-6765.
