We also sponsor a Facebook Group. This is called Toastmasters District 52 and can be found at this link: Toastmasters District 52 In this Group, you have to ask to join, then you can participate in the feed and post club events. Requests to join are normally approved within 24 hours. The group is where we share the positive things about our club or even about ourselves. For instance, if you just received your CC, post your certificate and let us celebrate with you. This Group is open to all posts regarding Toastmasters. Post your clubs special meetings or other special Toastmaster event.
We do have rules. Personal or business promotions or anything deemed inappropriate will be removed. If you see content that is inappropriate please send a message to Elizabeth Gilbert at PRM@District52.org.
District 52 has a LinkedIn Group. Join this group and add it to your Profile Groups. As a member your welcome to start conversations and engage other District 52 Toastmasters. You can find the District 52 LinkedIn group at https://www.linkedin.com/groups/7045059

Group Rules: Toastmasters International Mission: We empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.
District Mission: We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.
This is a professional development and discussion group for Toastmasters District 52. Its purpose is to educate our members, encourage discussions relative to communications and leadership, and to help notify members about upcoming events within District 52. You do not have to be a District 52 Toastmaster to participate.
The rules are: Be nice. Bring value to the discussions. Be helpful. Encourage one another. Highlight trends. Share case studies and resources.
If all you do is show up and drop links to your own webinars, blog posts or job info, expect to have your items flagged “Promotion” or “Jobs.” ANY Group member can flag items, and should feel free to do so. Self-policing is the most effective way to keep spammers at bay.
Keep self-promoting, and you’ll get a private warning from the Group Manager. Keep doing it after a warning, and we’ll block you from the Group.
Obviously, if you roll in here with abusive, sexist, racist or otherwise obnoxious language, you’ll get blocked.
