Are you an associate of State Farm Insurance who works at Corporate South in Bloomington? if so, you're cordially invited to a State Farm OAKS Toastmasters ( meeting! Come surround yourself with encouraging people who will challenge you to grow as a communicator/leader.

State Farm OAKS Toastmasters ( will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent, or retiree, Toastmasters is the most effective, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication and leadership skills. By learning to think quickly on your feet and to express your ideas with confidence, you'll gain the respect of your peers and become more persuasive in everyday conversations.

Our members' skill levels range from still learning the English language to award winning speakers.

To learn more, and to meet our members, visit one of our regular meetings, held from 11:35 AM to 12:25 PM on non-pay-week Thursdays.

Guests are ALWAYS welcome to attend and participate at no cost. There is no obligation to speak--we wait until YOU feel ready.

So, what happens at a Toastmasters meeting? Some members give prepared speeches and then members and guests give impromptu speeches on selected topics. Constructive evaluation of the speeches and meeting management follows, for continual improvement. It's more fun than it sounds, and really helps improve skills!
