The Articulates club #316 charter began in Irvine in April 1977. Since then we have grown with the changes of our surroundings, but have remained devoted to the pursuit of improving public speaking in a friendly and supportive environment. The club is proud to reflect the community with an international membership, with roots in locations that span the globe. Our asset is in the camaraderie of the membership that maintains the long history of the club's traditions. We have earned the recognition of Toastmasters International with 9 consecutive President's Distinguished Club awards. Our membership includes a range of experience from those who have just joined to the advanced levels, including Distinguished Toastmasters. We are active in the Toastmaster contests and have achieved representation at the regional level.

The Articulates is an affiliate of Toastmasters International, the world’s leading organization devoted to the improvement and development of individual leadership and communication skills. Nearly 3 million men and women have benefited from Toastmaster training. 

Members have the opportunity to learn and practice techniques of effective public speaking in a friendly and supportive environment. There is a variety of speaking opportunities each week - some are suited to beginners, while others are for experienced Toastmasters. There are opportunities for members to prepare and deliver formal speeches on subjects of your own choosing to gain speaking experience that relates to your specific personal or career needs. 
The Articulates also has a Mentor Program to help new members to gain personal confidence that will help when speaking to one person or one thousand. Membership is open to both beginners and experienced speakers. Toastmasters Club is a unique means of learning and improving your communicative abilities.
