Welcome to District 101 Toastmasters!
District 101 opened its doors on July 1, 2016 to serve the area from Mountain View to King City, including Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito counties and most of Santa Clara county – we call it “Silicon to Surf”.
Message from the District Director
Value is the most important benefit we can offer our members, and it’s our members that make Toastmasters so valuable. It’s unique among communication and leadership development organizations because we’re all members, working together to help each other grow and become more self-confident.
This year our District theme is experience the value. Experience is both a verb and a noun. It’s when we get involved (experience as a verb) that we benefit and thrive (experience as a noun). As the skills and self-confidence we gain from being a Toastmaster begin to impact everything we do, after a while we also come to value the experience of being a Toastmaster. My hope for our District this year is that every member will get involved in a new way, and experience the value that results from stretching ourselves and learning something new.
We all joined Toastmasters for different reasons, but as we journey together as a community of learners, encouraging others to dream, we discover that we’ve flourished ourselves. On this journey, we create opportunities for others to experience the value that Toastmasters has to offer and we discover that as we do, we also experience the value ourselves.

Anytime I visit a new city, country, or continent for that matter, part of my Toastmasters mission is to look up and visit clubs. Over the last 6 years as a Toastmaster, I have had the opportunity of visiting over 20 clubs across 5 continents. Naturally, when the Antarctica opportunity came up, I looked up clubs to visit there too. Read more…
