Toastmasters - Alan Gallaway
Alan Gallaway is a Toastmaster International member and a member of the Skillbuilder's Club (as well as Rotary.) He said that the First TI club was in Santa Ana. It’s grown to 300000 in 149 countries whereas RI has 1.2 M in over 200 countries. Club size in TI is smaller like 10-20 members per club while RI largest club is OKC with 615 members. 
TI has a fairly rigid agenda starting with pledge and thought, joke, and educational minute. Then Table Topics, consisting of members being called on to speak 1-2 minutes on a topic or question from the Table Topics Master. This is followed by a General Evaluator who, after calling on evaluators for the speeches, evaluates the meeting in general. 
Cindy Harris gave an “Ice breaker” speech, telling us about herself and the first speech she gave at Toastmasters. It was awesome!
Then Anne Sandler, a longtime member of TI, with the designation of DTM, Distinguished Toastmaster, gave an excellent speech on how Toastmasters changed her life.
