What happens at your meeting?
First, our club is very relaxed in atmosphere and people, so feel free to dress casually and come to our meeting just as you are.
After a brief welcome, you will hear 4 members give a speech. Each member is free to select their speech topic and work on different communication skills. You will learn a lot just by listening to their speeches!
Next comes table topics. This gives everyone a chance to speak. The topicsmaster asks an open-ended question, and the member selected gives an answer on the spot. As a guest, you are welcome to participate.
Then, you will hear evaluations. Fellow members give feedback to the 4 members that gave a speech. The meeting, as a whole, is evaluated too. We recognize each other for what they did well, and we give advice on how they can improve as a speaker and a leader.
We close the meeting by welcoming guests (that's you!) and discussing meeting roles for next week. Please stay after the meeting and let us get to know you better!

How many times can I visit as a guest?
As many times as you want! Your visits are always free and welcome.
Before you decide to become a member, we encourage you to visit other Toastmasters clubs, talk to the members to get a feel for the club, and see which is right for you.
We would love to have you as our member, of course. We also believe in making sure that you find the right club for your Toastmasters journey.
How do I become a member?
You fill out the membership application (available at our meetings) and pay your membership due. We turn in your application to Toastmasters International. Tada! You are now our member.
Feel free to download the membership application and bring it with you. Please ask the officers for help with filling out the application.
How much is the membership due?
If you are joining Toastmasters for the first time, the due is at most $80.
This total consists of 3 parts:
1. New members pay $20 for Pathways registration. This is one-time. If you had joined Toastmasters before, you do not pay this again.
2. Every six months, before April and October, members pay $45. Depending on which month you join, you pay a portion of $45.
3. Every six months, our club asks for $15 to help pay for meeting room and equipment.
