Members often hear “through the grapevine” that speeches concerning politics, religion and sex are forbidden by Toastmasters International because “such controversial subjects are not appropriate.”
This is not true. Toastmasters International does not prohibit any speech topic, content or language.
Toastmasters International recognizes that club members may learn much about the world around them from listening to others’ speeches on a variety of subjects. This variety can add interest to club meetings and stimulate thoughts and ideas. For these reasons, Toastmasters International does not place restrictions on topics, content or language in any speech.
Toastmasters International also recognizes that a club comprises a diverse group of people and recommends that members be mindful of this diversity, using good taste and sensitivity when selecting speech topics, content and language.
While Toastmasters International has no organizational restrictions along these lines, each individual club does have the right to limit speech subjects, content and/or language, with the consensus of its members. Club leaders should guide their members on how to observe good taste and sensitivity in the context of that particular club.
Club websites are useful vehicles clubs can use to advise members and guests of any policies that have been decided. Presenting information on a club website helps maintain consistency as leadership changes. Additionally, it allows transparency and clarity for club members so they can periodically review the established practices of their club.
Please inform the SG Online Executive Committee if you wish to present a speech topics on Controversial Speech Topics in advance and we let you know if it is fine to proceed.

Because of Zoom’s updates to its security policies, the meeting link is no longer published on this page.
Software Download On your first visit, you will be prompted to download and install the Zoom software, if you do not already have it on your computer.
Once you’ve installed the software, it should launch you into the online meeting session.
There is also a “join with your browser” option that should allow you to join the meeting without installing software. This is particularly worth trying if you’re having trouble with the software download. Some fancy features may be missing from the browser-only version, but you won’t necessarily care about those on your first visit.
Mobile Apps It is also possible to join via the Zoom Mobile apps for iOS and Android. Follow the same link from your mobile device, and you will be prompted to download the app.
Attending the meeting on your phone will allow you to visit, but for full participation in our meetings using a PC is better.
