Gavel clubs, which operate as special groups affiliated with Toastmasters International, are formed as a result of individuals’ inability to comply with eligibility requirements. See the bylaws within the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of Toastmasters International, Article I: Purpose, Section 2, (f), and Article III: Membership, Section 1.
The gavel club program is administered by World Headquarters, which provides materials, methods and services to gavel clubs. Gavel clubs are not affiliated with any Toastmasters club or district. However, members, clubs and districts may have working relationships with gavel clubs or lend them support. See Policy and Protocol, Policy 5.1: Gavel Clubs.Contact your Area Director / Division Director to get contact details of gavel clubs at your location.
