30 Years of Werribee Toastmasters

Thirty years ago our club was born. It started as a club for members of the RAAF base in Laverton but it was soon decided it should become a community-based club.
This is an important milestone for our club and one worthy of celebration. In these 30 years and 781 meetings, hundreds of members have learned, practised, and developed important communication and leadership skills and then taken these skills and knowledge to their community, business and family lives. And we still continue doing so.

For some of our members, the whole experience of Toastmasters has been through the club. For others, the club has been the gateway to a broader Toastmasters journey of self-development, leadership and enduring friendships and associations.
Werribee Toastmasters has had among its members two former District Governors, Danny Owen and Tom Boon, numerous Area and Division Governors. The club has hosted two district conventions, one in Tullamarine, hosted in conjunction with Essendon Toastmasters, and another at the Werribee Mansion, where May Wilson, DTM. was chair and Wendy Powell, DTM, convention secretary.
Let’s enjoy our anniversary, and continue to follow our club mission so that not only our members but those who visit the club can experience the fun and personal growth that epitomises membership in Werribee Toastmasters.
