Due to overwhelming response, the SIM Toastmasters Clubs had over the years split into two groups to have more dedicated focus and individual attention to our Toastmasters Members’ needs.

For the SIM I Toastmasters Club, their chapter meetings are held on every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. For the SIM II Toastmasters Club, their chapter meetings are held on every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month. In terms of age, the SIM I Toastmasters Club, which was established in 1984, is five years older than the SIM II Toastmasters Club. To find your fit into either of the Clubs, it is recommended you visit them to find out your comfort level with the group dynamics as well as select the group where your schedule can fit in the regular chapter meetings.

Correspondence to Interest Group Members who are staff of SIM Corporate Members will be sent to the company address as you are tapping on your company’s corporate membership. For SIM Individual Members, you have an option to select the correspondence address to either your home or company.
