How often does your Club meet?
Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 PM.  You can see a list of our scheduled meeting dates on our Calendar page.

Is there a fee to attend a meeting?
There are no fees to attend a meeting as a guest.

Will I be required to speak when I visit?
No. As a visitor you are there simply to observe.

Do I need to bring anything with me when I visit?
No, you do not need to bring anything.

Do you need to be a sales and marketing professional to join?
No. While our membership does have sales and marketing people, it is diverse in regards to profession, age, ethnicity and experience.

How does a meeting work?
A meeting is comprised of a presentation section and an evaluation section. People give prepared speeches, quick talks on specific subjects and impromptu talks which are then evaluated in the second half of the meeting. Our Typical Meeting page provides more details but the best way to understand it is to visit a meeting to see for yourself.

How do I visit a meeting?
Just send us an e-mail to let us know you are coming – or you are welcome to just drop by! It is, however, a good idea to contact us if you are visiting just in case a meeting time has been altered.

Is Toastmasters like taking a course?
It is not like taking a course at all.  There are no instructors as you learn from your own experience and the expertise of others in the club. Feedback is provided in a professional, structured and supportive manner by other members. As a member, you will work from material that teaches the elements of public speaking leadership and more.

Will I become a better speaker?
Absolutely! Like anything else, it is a function of how much you put into it.  Many people improve and gain confidence at an impressive rate once they realize it’s not as intimidating as once thought. Members also develop and improve presentation skills, leadership skills, meeting facilitation and more.

How much does membership cost?
Membership cost is very low as we are a volunteer organization. Membership fees are paid annually in March. The first year is $159 due to new member fees and $134 annually thereafter. For more information and membership details, please see our Pricing page.
