Video demo: email newsletter and event invitation tools for clubs and districts

The suite of email tools you have access to through Toastmost have gotten a significant upgrade, and I’ve included a video tour below.

In the video, I’m wearing my hat as the creator of the RSVPMaker plugin for WordPress, which organizations outside of Toastmasters also use to share their news and event invitations. RSVPMaker is a component of the WordPress for Toastmasters solution, and the email features are active by default on a club or district website hosted at

District 62 has been using the email newsletter tool and has provided feedback to make it better. I’d like to see more clubs and districts try it.
