Coronavirus Update - Revised October 19 - Review New Information

Thanks to our clubs and their members, Toastmasters District 53 has weathered the initial consequences of the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. As you know, key District, Division and Area meetings, as well as most club meetings, have transitioned to an online format for the duration of this public health emergency.

In accordance with research and government guidance, the District 53 leadership team urges all Toastmasters clubs to consider themselves non-essential programs, and to delay opening in-person until the risk to member health is negligible according to Toastmasters International and local authorities.
