Welcome to Toastmasters District 15
One of the immediate impressions that most visitors note is that a Toastmasters meeting is an inviting, welcoming place where everyone is encouraged to pursue their goals of personal growth in a constructive environment. As a matter of fact, this is reflected in the Toastmaster's Club Mission Statement:
The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
“Powerful speakers are effective leaders. Toastmasters makes me a powerful speaker.”
—Vandye Forrester, III, Professor of Speech, Logic, Rhetoric
Recognizing that the act of speaking in front of a group can be a bit intimidating, in fact, it’s considered one of the greatest fears most people have, Toastmasters provides that safe, comfortable environment for everyone to gain confidence, develop their communication skills, practice active leadership, and help their fellow members.
Visitors are always welcome, and joining a club is easy. Simply locate a club convenient to you, visit a meeting, and enjoy. Don’t be alarmed if you are greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. If you like, print off a club visitor’s evaluation sheet and grade the club you visit.
