Now celebrating its Jubilee year, Highrisers Toastmasters Club welcomes visitors who are interested in a positive, constructive approach to improving their public speaking skills. We meet every Wednesday morning from 7:45am to 8:45am at the Hyde Park United Methodist Church in the shadow of beautiful downtown Tampa.
Founded in April 1989, Highrisers Toastmasters held its initial meetings in one of Tampa’s highrise buildings – thus the name, Highrisers. All year long in 2014 we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary, so come join us! Over the years, the club has been recognized repeatedly by Toastmasters International with the President’s Distinguished Club Award and the Select Distinguished Club Award. Our member roster ranges from new members to the highest Toastmasters rank, the “DTM” or Distinguished Toastmaster designation held by Holly P. Thomas, James Randolph, and Janet Pantaleo.
