“I stay in Toastmasters because of the people and educational value! Warm, supportive, fun-loving and inspiring describe West Seattle Toastmasters Club #832.”
Club #832 was founded on April 1, 1950 as the “Federal Toastmaster’s Club of Seattle”. Membership was drawn from Federal service military and civilian personnel in and around Seattle. The original officers came from the General Services Administration, the FBI, the Seattle Port of Embarkation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Public Housing Administration.
In 2020 our club celebrated its 70th anniversary and continues to provide a supportive learning environment to all community members.
