Promasters Club Meeting
WHO: We are a group of about 35 men and women meeting weekly since 1999 to improve each other's speaking and leadership potential in a supportive, fun, and friendly environment. We range in age from early 20's to 70+, we come from many parts of the world (some are quite exotic), and we bring unique experiences and perspectives to the group. We help each other to achieve many personal and professional goals. Our club has received the President's Distinguished Club award 7 years in a row. How do we earn it and why do we bother? It is a recognition from Toastmasters International awarded to clubs that provide the highest quality club experience to their members, both on the educational and on the leadership track. It takes careful planning, careful tracking, and the help of every member. WHEN: Every Thursday from 7:30 am - 8:30am. Early meetings are the best! We start & finish on-time and we get plenty of positive energy for the last two days of the work week. WHERE: The best part of our club - there is an amazing breakfast involved!

What we're about

Looking to develop speaking and leadership skills? Win that job interview? Ignite your career?

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our membership is 270,000 strong. These members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 13,000 clubs that make up our global network of meeting locations.

Membership in Toastmasters is one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself. At $36 every six months, it is also one of the most cost-effective skill-building tools available anywhere. Individual clubs may require extra nominal payments for club dues.

District 4 Toastmasters comprises about 230 clubs from San Francisco to Monterey! Each Toastmasters club provides a safe and supportive environment to practice communication and leadership skills. We will post significant Toastmasters events in this Meetup where you can drop in and meet other Toastmasters and see how they have benefited from being Toastmasters. Speech contests, District conferences and Club Open Houses are opportunities to experience Toastmasters.

How Does It Work?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual (http://www.toastmasters.org/Members/MemberExperience/EducationalProgram/CommunicationTrack.aspx), a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
