Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization through which people can develop communication and leadership skills. Founded in 1924, Toastmasters has grown to have nearly 270,000 members in more than 13,000 clubs in 116 countries.
Korea Toastmasters became a territorial council last year. Of 33 chartered clubs in Korea, 16 belong to Seoul. There are another 13 unchartered clubs aiming to be chartered.
Two Korean-language Toastmasters were opened in Daejeon (Sejong Masters) and Seoul (Mashinan). A Korean-English bilingual club also been chartered, and a Japanese-English club is expected to be approved soon.
Since the Korea clubs formed a territorial council last year, they are required to hold two conferences every year. The spring conference was held in May in Busan.
