Meet Your Webmaster


Frank Storey, DTM


I joined the Singularly Speaking Toastmasters Club in June 1986 in Fort Worth, Texas and was a member of 5 clubs within a month...and I never looked back. January 1991 I was transferred from Texas to Baltimore, and joined a club in District 27 (Lone Star Toastmasters) and then one in District 18 (Northrop Grumman Gaveliers). Currently I'm a member and mentor to Northrop Grumman Gaveliers Toastmasters Club, the NuGenesis Toastmasters Gavel Club and the MasterMinds Toastmasters Gavel Club.

At my first District function, a judging workshop, I met the woman who would become my wife, Karen Kidwell Storey, DTM2. We have been married 20 years, both love Toastmasters and love to travel.
