What we're about

Need to develop your public speaking, leadership, and networking skills in a supportive environment? Looking to meet a few new people in the area? Then Toastmasters is the group for you. Toastmasters is an organization that empowers individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) Toastmasters is a long-standing club in Northwest DC. Our club mission is to provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

We are open to both PBGC and non-PBGC employees. We meet at noon on the first and third Thursday of every month at PBGC, 1200 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20005. Because we meet at a federal agency, you must bring a photo ID to be admitted past security.

Meetings

Each meeting, members give short prepared speeches and receive constructive peer evaluations. Members and guests are also welcome to participate in Table Topics by giving 1-2 minute improvised speeches.

Become a Better Speaker

PBGC Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. By learning to formulate and convey your ideas, you open a new world of possibilities. You will be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you will develop leadership, teamwork, and interpersonal skills as well.

Become a Leader

Leadership is the art of persuading others to do what you wish. To succeed, you need to communicate, and you need to work as a team. In Toastmasters, you’ll learn do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people, be they the audience for a speech, the committee for a fundraiser, or your coworkers and managers.
