Our club is made of speakers of all experience levels. Come be inspired by the progress of new speakers and learn from our advanced speakers.

The Goals

Our club is a traditional Toastmasters club, focused on helping members overcome any fear of speaking and become the best speakers they can. There are opportunities to improve with both improvisational and prepared speaking, as well as in leadership settings. For members seeking to improve their leadership abilities, there are multiple club roles members can take on to gain valuable hands on experience. There are also multiple levels and awards to achieve, which look great on a resume.

The Meeting

Meetings are designed to be extremely supportive environments. Guests are welcome to participate in our first section, where our Topics Master for the night asks people impromptu questions. We also often have special speaking segments like a debate panel or mock interview. The final segment of the night is our prepared speeches and evaluations by members. It’s an opportunity for members to work through any fears they have and improve on specific goals from the Toastmasters pathway they selected.
