The Toastmasters International Board of Directors provides leadership to Toastmasters members worldwide. Once elected, board members work for the benefit of all clubs and members in the organisation. They do not represent a particular region, district, or a particular cause.
As the governing body of the organisation, the board establishes policy and guidelines in the ares of education, administration and growth and leads Toastmasters International by setting the strategic direction. Such policies are administered on a day-to-day basis by World headquarters.
