This meetup.com group is simply an extension of our club. You can expect on average 10~15 members showing up at each meeting despite how many attendees are shown on this meetup.com group.
The Top of Troy club was established in May 2006 and is open to all. We meet noon every Wednesday at either the Troy Public Library or the Troy Community Center. Please check our website for the exact schedule or more details!
Toastmasters is a place where you develop and grow - both personally and professionally. We are a community of learners. The environment at a Toastmasters club is friendly and supportive. Everyone at a Toastmasters meeting feels welcome and valued - from complete beginners to advanced speakers. In a club meeting, you practice giving prepared speeches as well as brief impromptu presentations, known as Table Topics. There is no rush and no pressure: The Toastmasters program allows you to progress at your own pace.
Constructive evaluation is central to the Toastmasters philosophy. Each time you give a prepared speech, an evaluator will point out strengths as well as suggest improvements. Receiving - and giving - such feedback is a great learning experience. In Toastmasters, encouragement and improvement go hand-in-hand.
