What we're about

Congratulations - you're on your way to becoming a better communicator and leader! Toastmasters International, founded in 1924, is a proven product, regarded as the leading organization dedicated to communication and leadership skill development. As a member, you will gain all the tools, resources and support you need. Through its worldwide network of clubs, Toastmasters helps nearly 280,000 people communicate effectively and achieve the confidence to lead others. Why pay thousands of dollars for a seminar or class when you can join a Toastmasters club for a fraction of the cost and have fun in the process?

Practice will make you gain confidence, and feedback from the group will help you improve. It's a totally safe environment, and we try very hard to make even the most anxious person feel welcome. We will meet in a small group setting in order to have an audience to actually practice on, and this will allow everybody to speak several times in each meeting. Come attend our meetings, and you'll quickly see an improvement in your public speaking skills

MINY Toastmasters invites you to join us every first, third, and fifth Wednesday of each month as we work together on practicing our public speaking skills. We meet from 6-8pm at 11 Madison Ave.
