Resolve to Speak for the Animals in 2013! Come to Toastmasters, Meet Cool People

Hello UAALA members!

Come out and join fellow vegans and vegetarians for fun times, learning, and networking with other veg*ans.

As a guest or member of Vegan Toastmasters, you just might:
- Learn to gracefully handle sensitive situations with family, friends and coworkers
- Identify effective techniques to persuade and inspire as an activist
- Make long lasting friendships with other vegans
- Develop your self-confidence as a public speaker
- Refine your PR speech for your animal-friendly product or service
- Chat with vegans about important issues and local events
- Build skills and make a difference for animals, your health and the environment

Please keep in mind there is no need to prepare a speech or anything like that if you are a newcomer. There is no requirement for guests to actively participate in the meeting if they choose not to. Guests will still find the meeting instructive and enjoyable.
Meeting Time: 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Meeting Location: West Los Angeles Animal Care Center 11361 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

About Vegan Toastmasters The mission of Vegan Toastmasters is to provide a supportive, encouraging environment for members to develop their speaking and leadership skills, thus enabling the members to more effectively spread the message of respect and compassion for all of our fellow beings, and the message of a healthier body and planet through dietary choices. Founded in 1924, Toastmasters International has helped over three million people worldwide to become more effective speakers. Toastmasters' time-proven formula for speaking success revolves around attending meetings and working through its Basic and Advanced Manuals. In addition to improving speaking skills, working through the Toastmasters program will improve leadership, listening, writing, and evaluation skills as well. People interested in Toastmasters or veganism can visit the club as a guest for free.


Cheers,

P.S. At this particular meeting I will be giving a speech about my experiences in vet school and as a vegan veterinarian. Come to the meeting to hear it! :)

    I would like to let people know that by coming to a Vegan Toastmasters meeting as a guest, you are welcome to participate in the Table Topics portion of the meeting, in which participants may address questions related to veganism and a variety of other pertinent topics and thereby practice their public speaking skills which they can then go out and use when advocating for animals and the planet. Additionally, guests are allowed to give one prepared speech (after attending at least one meeting) without formally joining the club.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
