What we're about

Do you want to become a better public speaker? Do you want to gain confidence and the courage to lead? You have come to the right place! The Contrarians Toastmasters club offers a fun and supportive environment to develop your speaking and leadership skills.

However, we are no ordinary Toastmasters club. The Contrarians motto is "No Topic is Taboo" and we encourage everyone to speak about whatever is on your mind. As you can see from our meeting themes, we do not shy away from 'controversial' topics.

It is free to join this Meetup group, and you are welcome to attend any of our meetings. If you decide to formally join our club, please consider making a commitment to yourself and the club to be an active club member for at least one year so that you may truly grow from the Toastmasters experience. While we have a lot of fun, we also pride ourselves on our commitment to the Toastmasters program. The fee to join both Toastmasters International and our club is only $80.60 for the initial 6 month period (OCT-MAR; APR-SEPT) as a new member and $59.00 every 6 month period after. The payback on this investment in yourself is tremendous.

We meet every Wednesday from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. We meet online via Zoom. Sign up for one of our events to see the link to our zoom. There may be a few rare occasions when the time may change, so please refer to our schedule on the main meetup page for exact times of each meeting.

If you want to build your speaking and leadership skills, and have some fun along the way, join us and experience the fun for yourself!!!
