Thank you for your interest in Thomas Jefferson Toastmasters Club in Woodbridge, VA.
Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 352,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,400 clubs in 141 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations. More information (https://www.toastmasters.org/about/who-we-are)
Toastmasters' educational program is designed to develop professional proficiencies such as project management, public speaking, team leadership and a host of other skills that improve your professional profile. Each Toastmasters club has a unique personality to support your growth. In my opinion, our club offers some very special features and qualities.
1. Smaller club size means more opportunity to participate in the meeting roles and as a speaker.
2. Twice monthly meetings reduce the burden of attendance and the pressure to speak often, unless you want to.
3. Small groups make speaking easier - almost like talking to a very supportive group of friends.
4. Our mentor program provides fellow Toastmasters to help smooth the path to your growth in Toastmasters.
5. Our club is well organized, meetings are productive, and we encourage a focused approach to all the members at their various levels of skills.
6. Thomas Jefferson Toastmasters Club is actively involved in Toastmaster opportunities beyond the club level. Contests, training, volunteerism and leadership create additional growth opportunities. s
7. Membership in Thomas Jefferson Toastmasters gives you the pride of being an integral part of an award-winning, Presidents Distinguished (top performing) club.
Dale Carnegie instructors tell their students that Toastmasters is the best way to continue their growth and a lot cheaper! We have all found Toastmasters to be an even bigger life experience than we imagined.
We thank you for your visit. Hope to see you soon at one of our meetings.
