The Toastmasters "District"

Regions and Districts

Toastmasters International is a worldwide organisation. From an organisational perspective, Toastmasters is divided into several Regions. Each region is then broken up into several administrative Districts.

New Zealand is located in Oceania, Region 12, along with Districts 17, 69, 70, 73 and 96 in Australia and 87 (Malaysia).

A District can only contain so many clubs and New Zealand got too big. From July 1, 2018, District 112 was created to serve the North Island, excluding Greater Wellington. The original District (72) continued to serve the south of the country.
