Club Ambassador Program

Grow Your Comfort Zone

By organizing visits to other clubs, the Club Ambassador Program (CAP) helps both individual Toastmasters and clubs explore new opportunities and expand their horizons.

Why Be an Ambassador?

There are over 16,600 reasons why visiting different clubs makes sense.

The Club Ambassador Program (CAP) fosters the mutual growth of both individual Toastmasters and clubs by encouraging members to visit other clubs within or outside the district — or around the world.

For individuals, visiting other clubs provides an opportunity to explore other Toastmasters environments and gain new experiences and speaking opportunities. For clubs, hosting a club ambassador can energize meetings and share new ideas and viewpoints with its own members.

In addition to recognizing the best practices of club visits (as reported by club ambassadors), the Club Ambassador Program also presents awards to Toastmasters for making the most visits and to clubs for hosting the most visits.

Why Visit Another Club?

Being a club ambassador provides an opportunity to share your experience as a Toastmaster and can help the clubs you visit bring out the best in themselves. Moreover, you’ll learn new ideas and best practices and you can bring back to your own club. Simply put, the Club Ambassador Program creates opportunities to proliferate the best of Toastmasters.

Personal Benefits

  • Gain confidence from speaking in front of unfamiliar audience.
  • Expand your horizon by meeting people and learning new things.

Awards and Prizes

  • To earn credit for a club visit, club ambassadors must submit a report within 7 days of their visit.
