Are you a dynamic speaker with a message?  Do you have a passion for education?

You are invited to share your expertise at the D99 Conference as an education session presenter.

Building around the general conference theme of “California Dreaming”, and a tagline of “Together Towards Tomorrow”, there will be three streams of educational sessions on themes of:

  • Club Excellence
  • Speaking Excellence
  • Leadership Excellence

These educational sessions will be presented on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday April 21, 2024.  We anticipate there to be three concurrent education sessions at a time, with one presenter on each of these three general themes, with Nine education sessions in total

Conference audiences look for value from hands-on sessions, audience interaction, question & answer opportunities, and information specific sessions.  These allow your audience to leave each session with a sense of having learned something new, contributing to a change in their lives, their clubs and their Toastmasters experience.  We look forward to audiences feeling energized, informed and motivated from their attendance and participation in these education sessions

Guidelines for submitting a presentation proposal

Submission deadline:

Submission deadline is February 15, 2024.

Educational Session Title, Description and Learning Objectives:

  • Please consider your session title carefully.  The title is the key identifier of the session and attendees will expect the title to reflect the primary focus of the session.
  • Educational session descriptions are to be clear, concise and free of jargon so they are understandable to everyone.
  • Learning objectives should refer to one or more of the central educational themes.  If a portion of the session will be interactive, please describe.
  • Your submission will be reviewed by the Conference Educational Committee so it is important that it is well-written.

Submission Instructions:

Additional information


Handouts will be posted on the District 99 website following the Conference.  If you prefer to have a handout at the session, you will be responsible for bringing copies.  You will be asked to supply an electronic copy of your handout prior to the conference


Evaluation feedback is extremely useful for presenters and event organizers.  At the end of your session, the audience will be asked to complete the evaluation form.  Completed evaluations will be provided to you


Education sessions are anticipated to be 45 minutes long.   You will have the assistance of a Presentation Session Toastmaster (who will introduce you and provide closing remarks at the end of your session) and a Sergeant-at-Arms who will welcome attendees and ensure there is seating for everyone.
