Program Quality Director Toastmasters build relationships. The spirit of Toastmasters is summed up by the word lagniappe, which means something given or obtained gratuitously. As members of the District 15 Toastmasters Family we strive to give more of ourselves than asked, and in turn we receive more than we ever expected.
