History of Best of Dallas Toastmasters
Best of Dallas Toastmasters began in 2015 when several members of Big D Toastmasters (which was becoming quite large) decided to form a new club in order to create more opportunities to take on leadership and speaking roles. These members were quickly joined by several others who were new to Toastmasters, and the club officially chartered in June 2015. Best of Dallas still retains a strong relationship with its sister club, Big D. While new, Best of Dallas Toastmasters is a strong group, with members of all skill levels and degrees of experience. We are not just aware of the history of our club, we are writing it.
