Renee Banchiere
Watermeisters Club President

President’s message:

When I decided to find a Toastmaster club, I was looking for a place to grow personal character traits that I value. Just walking in the meeting for the first time began the process of growing more courage.  Speaking and participating in meeting duties grew my confidence. Not a meeting passes without a hearty chuckle or more and I grow my sense of humor.  Everyone exercises kindness, always finding the positive and carefully offering suggestions for improvement. I consider it a service opportunity to assist another human being in growing such splendid character traits. If all that isn't enough, add to this list of benefits that I now count my fellow Watermeister members friends.  Watermeisters is an excellent place to grow more courage, confidence, humor, kindness, service and make new friends!


You have my heartfelt welcome, should you come to visit us, and I hope you do,


Renee Banchiere

Toastmasters History

In October 1924, a group of men assembled by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley met in the basement of the YMCA in nearby Santa Ana, California, forming a club "to afford practice and training in the art of public speaking and in presiding over meetings, and to promote sociability and good fellowship among its members." The group took the name "Toastmasters." Watermeisters is proud to be located in Founder's District, and to help carry on Dr. Smedley's legacy.

Watermeisters History

Watermeisters first met in July 1992 in Room 101 of the Municipal Water District of Orange County, with 20 eager, prospective members, and two Mentors. Today we meet "just around the corner" at the Orange County Sanitation District, and count among our membership several former Division and Area Governors, and District officers!
