Weekly Thursday Club Meeting

RSVP or just drop-in any Thursday. We start every meeting promptly at 11:30 so plan to be there 10 or so minutes before so we can meet you. No matter how many RSVP on this meetup page, we always have 12-15 in attendance at every meeting and meetings are never cancelled. Guests get to relax and just enjoy the show to see what we do and what we're all about.

Every meeting has 3 main components during our 90-minutes together:

1) Members are individually invited to the front of the room to practice their extemporaneous (impromptu) speaking. Guests are usually "invited" to participate but there is no pressure to do so.

2) Two or three members will present typically 5-7 minute prepared speeches where they are scheduled a few weeks in advance to present any topic of their choice...but with the goal of practicing a few specific objectives such as vocal variety, using hand gestures, organizing their speech, or using humor, to name a few.

3) The prepared speeches are formally evaluated by scheduled members. Evaluations are very reinforcing, supportive and encouraging for the speaker while maybe one or two areas of improvement are mentioned.

A lunch menu is offered by the restaurant in the facility but you are not required to buy lunch.

Dress: People come to our club directly from work and home. So, we have some people showing up in suits and some in jeans. Come as you are welcome!
