Toastmasters International is moving its headquarters from southern California to the Denver area
An article by Anh Do in the September 9th Los Angeles Times described how Toastmasters is moving to Denver because O.C. is too expensive. Since 1990 its headquarters have been in the city of Rancho Santa Margarita, in Orange County (O.C.), south of Los Angeles. That nonprofit organization was founded in Santa Ana back in 1924.
The move probably will happen in another two years. Back on August 16th there was another article in the Orange Country Register by Keith Sharon and Hannah Madans on How one woman is fighting to keep Toastmasters from leaving Orange County.
Why Denver? Why not? Any of the top 30 cities or metro areas in the U.S. with lower costs and more affordable housing could be considered. Denver ranks 19th.
