A Contest Organizer handles the organizational details needed to put together a contest. The individual responsible for the contest will usually find and enlist the Contest Organizer, so an Area Director who is responsible for an Area Contest will seek a Contest Organizer.

The Contest Organizer should start at least three months in advance to ascertain the date (which will probably be set by the responsible individual after consulting with District Officers), find a location for the contest, secure a Chief Judge and enlist the assistance of other individuals to handle food, set-up and clean-up, functionary roles, and other matters needed to successfully put on a contest.

Some Contest Organizers choose to use the experience as the basis for their High Performance Leadership project, which is actually a series of projects (with supervision by a panel) contained in a package of materials that may be obtained form the Toastmasters International Online Store.
