    Hi Sophie!

    New visitors are very welcome to come and check out the club (at no charge). We also recommend people to check out other Toastmasters clubs in the area.

    There is currently a waiting list to join but if you come along and want to become a member we can tell you a bit more about that.

    Members pay an annual fee (£100) to help cover training materials and other club costs.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Regards,

    Glen.

    I'm not part of the group. May I attend to just learn about toastmasters sessions? Should I come prepared? If I decided it was for me, can I join your group or is there a waiting list or a requirement? Thank u

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
