3. How is Toastmasters organized?

All Toastmasters members belong to one or more clubs. Clubs consist of at least eight members and may have forty or more. The recommended size for a club is twenty or more.

Clubs exist in communities around the world, especially in North America, and it's a rare locality in the United States that doesn't have at least one Toastmasters club within thirty minutes' driving time. There are, at present, over 8,000 clubs around the world, and most of them are in the United States.

There are many sorts of clubs: community clubs, military clubs, company clubs, prison clubs, collegiate clubs, and so on. At this time, the majority of the new clubs being chartered are company clubs, i.e. clubs chartered at and meeting at businesses and organizations, in many cases open only to employees or members of those organizations. In addition there are thousands of community clubs already in existence.
