Through improved communication and leadership skills, millions of men and women have become better speakers and leaders since 1924.
Ninety years ago, when Toastmasters founder, Dr. Ralph C. Smedley held the first meeting in the basement of a YMCA in Santa Ana, Calif., only a few people showed up. Now, with membership exceeding 313 million in more than 14,650 clubs in 126 countries, Toastmasters International continues to build on Dr. Smedley’s foundation of teaching public speaking and leadership skills.
Dr. Smedley said, “The unprepared speaker has the right to be afraid,” which is why Toastmasters teaches the art of preparation. Toastmasters clubs provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
Come join our meeting on Thursdays at 6:30 pm at the RC Family Resource Center. For more information email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating fills up FAST so reserve yours today!
The general public is invited to visit a meeting and learn more about what Toastmasters has to offer.
