EUREKA - The Eureka Toastmasters Chapter plans on meeting at the Republican Central Committee office at 106 S Main Eureka on the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 11 AM. Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. With a membership of 280,000 strong, members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 13,500 clubs in 116 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.
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. Contact Deb Russell, 309-634-1523, for information on becoming a member
