Guests invited to Toastmasters meeting in Little Falls

Posted: January 2, 2013 - 10:10pm

People who are interested in possibly joining the Humorous Toastmasters group in Little Falls may attend a meeting in the Franciscan Room of the Unity Specialty Center on the back side of St. Gabriel’s Hospital, 808 3rd St. SE (South of 7th Ave), Little Falls, on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. Toastmasters International members improve their speaking and leadership by speaking to small groups and working with others in a supportive environment. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation.

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Guests attend meetings at no cost. Interested persons may call Rich Andresen at 763-232-3777 to let club members aware of their interest.
