What we're about

Are you afraid of public speaking, and want to improve it among a group of friendly and supportive peers? Would you like get feedback and advice on how to improve your speaking skills from other seasoned speakers and Toastmasters? Would you like to get hands on leadership experience?

If yes, come join us, weekly, as we watch and give prepared speeches, conducted verbal evaluations, and engage in impromptu speaking. It's fun, helpful, and rewarding.
