Rotary International has an alliance with Toastmasters International to provide opportunities for Rotarians and Rotaractors to grow their networks, their leadership and communication skills, and their impact within the community. During the first General Members’ Meeting of the new Rotary year, we have received a presentation from Mr. Giovanni Jacobs, from Orua Toastmasters Club, Aruba.

This alliance with Toastmasters is different from Rotary International's relationships with other organizations: It enhances our membership experience through professional development opportunities and making connections beyond our club.
