Join one of our meetings, become the speaker and the leader you were destined to be! This is the venue See below for information on what we do... A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. A typical group has 20 to 40 members who meet weekly or biweekly to practice public speaking techniques. Members learn communication skills by initially completing the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Participants learn skills related to use of gestures, eye contact, speech organization and overall delivery. After competing this members can choose from 15 advanced manuals to learn skills related to specific interests for example, persuasive speaking, storytelling, giving technical presentations, humorous speaking. Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and serving as officers at the club and district levels. The leadership track includes working through the Competent Leadership manual and theHigh Performance Leadership program. In our learn-by-doing approach, we don’t lecture our members about leadership skills; we give them responsibilities and ask them to lead. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate and give feedback one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings, serve as officers in various leadership roles and learn about timing, grammar and parliamentary procedure.
