What we're about

Dear Current & Future Distinguished Toastmasters:

Toastmasters International is a U.S. headquartered nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of promoting communication and public speaking skills.

Thumbs Up Toastmasters is a Irving-based club chapter of this international organization. We're known officially as Club #1415 | Area 61 | District 25, but unofficially as a friendly and welcoming bunch.

Although some clubs are exclusive to those that work at a certain company, business professionals, advanced speakers only, or some other restriction, Thumbs Up Toastmasters is not. Everyone is welcome! We love beginners just starting on their pathway to becoming a powerful public speaker.

Rain or shine, we meet every Sunday from 3 pm to 4.30 pm in Irving. Join the Meetup group to see where we meet in person!

Regards,

Neil Lemons

President
