Evaluation Process for Toastmasters Accredited Speaker Program


Level 1: Audio The audio presentation functions as a first-level screening of applicants for accreditation. If your application is accepted for the review panel’s consideration the panel will appraise your presentation and determine eligibility to proceed to the second review. A four out of five vote by this panel will determine if an applicant advances to Level 2. Level 2: Live Applicants who successfully complete the first-level screening are invited to appear before a live review panel at the International Convention at his or her own expense. Live presentations must be 20 to 45 minutes (depending on available time), and may or may not use visual aids, at the presenter’s discretion.
