Join us for District 35’s fall conference in Madison, Wisconsin! Individuals interested in improving their communication and leadership skills throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan will come together to learn from experts, network with their peers, and get inspired by the District Humorous Speech Contest participants and our keynote speaker Aaron Beverly, who received 2nd place in the 2016 World Championship Public Speaking.

This year’s theme is “Rise Up, Toastmasters!” It alludes to the journey of self-improvement members take in Toastmasters, rising from their former selves. Whether that means being able to present without shaking or answering the call when someone says “I think you’ll be District Director one day.”, we have all elevate ourselves to a new level through Toastmasters. We achieve this rising by following the Toastmasters core values of:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Service
  • Excellence

This year’s conference will focus on the journey of self-improvement and the values required to do so. Everyone is welcome at the fall convention; you don’t need to be in Toastmasters to attend! The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Madison on November 4th. More details, including hotel reservation information, will be released as they become available.

Sign up using Eventbrite or by completing a club or individual registration form.
