What We Doing
A Toastmasters meeting is a team effort. For a meeting to run effectively there are a number of roles to be filled by the members of the club.
Most speeches in Toastmasters are for a specific purpose. For example, the CC5 (Competent Communicator 5) is the Your Body Speaks speech, in which the speaker is to practice his or her gestures. Each speech title in the list has been prefixed with the speech number. CC stands for Competent Communicator, and AC stands for Advanced Communicator.
Evaluations are what makes Toastmasters the special place that it is for so many members. Through the systematic process of performance and feedback over and over again, we learn and grow.
Evaluation is the process of positive reinforcement and constructive feedback on how to become better in future presentations. It is a tricky skill to acquire, but one that will follow you into your dealings with others outside of Toastmasters.
Allows members the opportunity to practice impromptu speaking skills. The purpose of the Table Topics section is to help members think on their feet and speak on a given subject for between one and two minutes. It also allows speaking opportunities for those who are not programmed for other roles on the Agenda.
To guide the members through an evaluation of the meeting. With the help of the evaluation team, the general evaluator will offer his/her opinions on the strengths of the club and the areas where the club can improve the quality of their meetings.
Among them, you'll find junior & experienced speakers alike. Doctors, salespeople, entrepreneurs, engineers & many others fill our ranks. The one thing they have in common? A strong commitment at becoming better... especially at public speaking and leadership.
are dedicated to delivering the best club experience
