The invocation is an optional part of a toastmaster meeting. It can be either a prayer or inspirational thought. When a club has this role it is important for the speaker to do so in a manner that will not offend any of the attendees. When used it is at the beginning of the meeting, often followed by a pledge to the flag.

Popular formsEdit

When presented as a prayer it will usually need to be non-denominational.

In clubs that prefer not to use a prayer the invocation may take the form of:

  • a toast
  • a poem
  • recitation of a short famous speech or an excerpt of one
