Melfort Toastmasters is looking for more members to become a charter club
The group currently has 18 members and needs 20 members to charter. Certified Toastmasters groups access all the educational resources they have to offer, including 11 pathways for people to develop their public speaking skills, and more.
“We can get to the finer details of the tracks, we can get the logistics right now, but we can’t get the finer details before chartering,” said Andris.
The group meets once a week on Thursdays. Each meeting has a toastmaster who begins the meeting, the Sergeant-at-Arms reads their assignment, followed by speakers, reviews and table topics.
Andris said the time commitment depends on what members want out of it.
“If you can’t do it, you can’t do it,” Andris said. “You’re not committed to it and you don’t have to go to the executive clubs, but if you want, they open every year.”
Networking is another useful part of group involvement.
“It really helps you connect with people better,” Andris said.
Those interested can find Melfort Toastmasters online and on Facebook.
