Better Speakers and Leaders
Toastmasters is the best way for anyone —whether a working professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retiree —to improve his or her communication and leadership skills. Members overcome the fear of public speaking and learn skills that aid them in becoming more successful. Toastmasters creates better listeners and stronger team members and leaders who can comfortably give and receive constructive evaluations.
Joining a Toastmasters club is easy. A listing of clubs by geographic area can be located on the Toastmasters website at www.toastmasters.org/find. Visitors to the website can select the most convenient club, attend a meeting and apply for membership. (Applicants must be 18 or older.)
New clubs can be started with permission and assistance from Toastmasters International.
At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet once a week for approximately an hour. Each meeting gives members several opportunities:
Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings
Give impromptu speeches
Members present one to two minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
Present prepared speeches
Members present speeches based on projects from Toastmasters’ communication and leadership program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
Offer constructive evaluation
Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
