Event description
Practice your public speaking and leadership skills by attending Toastmasters! Meet others, network, and make giving speeches FUN!

About this event

**ANNOUNCEMENT: DUE TO COVID-19, WE ARE CURRENTLY MEETING VIRTUALLY VIA ZOOM EVERY WEDNESDAY 7-8PM. PLEASE REGISTER FOR A MEETING AND OUR OFFICERS WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH YOU ABOUT JOINING THE CLASS.

If you live or work on Capitol Hill and want to improve your public speaking and leadership skills, this friendly and supportive group is for you! Whether you work in a corporate environment or from home, whether you are a student or retiree, Toastmasters is an enjoyable way of learning, practicing, and perfecting communication and leadership skills.

Become a Better Speaker: Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to express yourself in any situation. You will become more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and improve your one-on-one dealings with others.

Become a Leader: Leadership is the art of persuading others to do what you wish. To succeed, you need to communicate and work as a team. In Toastmasters, you’ll do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people, whether they are an audience, committee, or coworkers and managers.

It Really Works! Don’t worry! Everyone in a Toastmasters club was once at the level you are now. The environment is friendly and supportive, and the self-paced program allows you to build confidence with each assignment. And you’ll love the applause! Constructive evaluation is the heart of the Toastmasters program. Each time you give a speech or fill another role, an evaluator will point out strengths and suggest improvements.

What Happens When I Join? With more than 250,000 members in more than 12,500 clubs in 106 countries, you’re sure to find a meeting near you. Most groups meet weekly or biweekly for one to two hours. The meetings are organized so that everyone will have a chance to participate. You schedule your own assignments in advance, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare.To join Toastmasters, be our guest at the next Lone Star Toastmasters' Meeting we'll help you fill out a member application form.
