(Replaced by the Advanced Toastmaster Gold Award on July 1, 1999)
To receive the Able Toastmaster Silver Award, a member in good standing of a club in good standing needed to complete the following:
The requirements for the Competent Toastmaster, Able Toastmaster, and Able Toastmaster Bronze awards;
Complete any three Advanced Communication and Leadership Programs for a total of fifteen speeches (excluding those completed for the Able Toastmaster and Able Toastmaster Bronze awards);
Conduct a training seminar in a company or in public OR conduct a Toastmasters training session for Club or District officers within two years of the ATM-S application;
Judge two Toastmasters speech contests above the Club level (Area, Division, District, Regional, or International);
Give a major platform address to a non-Toastmasters audience of 50 or more people within two years of the ATM-S application.
With the Project Completion Record near the back of the three Advanced C & L Programs and the Vice President Education's initials (by another club officer if the member was the Vice President Education), the member completed the Able Toastmaster Silver Award Application. This was the highest educational achievement in communication offered by Toastmasters International.
After Toastmasters International World Headquarters received all the forms, the member received a certificate (see below). The member could opt to have TI send his/her employer a letter of commendation.
