We had a new member join, Bryan Baki.

April 6th we will have to find another location as the town election is that day.

February 17th Wednesday at 7p.m. is a scheduled radio show in Vail for an hour on Toastmasters. Alan is going to attend. More details
We are thinking of adding another role, Inspirator to our meetings, a one to 2 minute story or inpsiration at the beginning of the meeting after the Toastmaster is introduced. We also would like to start theme meetings. The table topics person could choose a theme and we could use it throughout the meeting.

  1. Is there a charge for this course?

    • Toastmasters is not a ‘course’ but a collection of like-minded individuals who wish to learn to speak better and become better leaders in the community. As it is a membership organization there is a fee to join, but visitors are welcome as many times as they need to make the best decision for themselves.
