Greetings Happy People,
There are 58 Toastmasters clubs in the Las Vegas Valley. There are 176 Toastmaster clubs in District 33 – covering southern Nevada and central California. There are over 12,000 Toastmasters clubs worldwide. This mission of this organization is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
Throughout the 85 years of this organization, millions of people from all walks of life benefitted from joining Toastmasters. They became great leaders, great speakers, and great individuals. There are millions more that are about to take that first step and check out clubs that fits them. If you are considering joining a Toastmasters club, my best recommendation is to check out as many Toastmaster clubs as you can.
Each club has their own personality. There are clubs for single people. There are clubs based on political parties. There are professional clubs. There are church clubs. Heck!! There are clubs that are simply for the community!!
Checking out a Toastmasters club is just like trying on shoes. You want one that not only fits you comfortably, but also one that is able to make you feel and look good. Whether you want to become a professional speaker or just improve your communication skills, please make sure you select a Toastmasters club that meets YOUR needs. There is nothing more disheartening than to join a club that doesn’t because it will result in a lose-lose situation. We ALL want to be in that WIN-WIN situation and joining the right club is a WIN-WIN situation for everyone!!
There are Toastmasters club that meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. There are clubs that meet on one of the seven days of the week. There are clubs that either meet in the morning, lunchtime, or evenings. To know where and when to check out a Toastmasters Club in your community, all you have to do are the following steps:
