Irvine Contrarians Toastmasters Meetup - Theme: Live to Travel or Travel to Live

The Contrarians is not your typical Toastmasters club. We don't shy away from 'taboo' topics like politics, sex and religion. In fact, we encourage everyone to speak their minds! We meet every week to build communication and leadership skills in the Toastmasters tradition--in our own contrarian and fun way.

The latest edition of  The Contrarian Observer has club news, member profiles, trivia, and more!

Our meetings are every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We follow the traditional Toastmasters format with a different, thought-provoking theme for each meeting. We typically have 12 or more members per meeting, and guests are always welcome. Come and check us out! There is no cost to be a guest and you don't need to let us know, in advance, that you are coming. Please try to arrive by the meeting start time of 6:30 pm though.
