This past year has certainly brought some unforeseen challenges and many of us miss the camaraderie enjoyed with in-person Toastmasters meetings. The good news is that despite the difficulties brought on by the pandemic, Toastmasters continues to thrive and bring people together!
A new Toastmasters Club is being formed called the Seasoned Speakers Toastmasters Advanced Club.
This club is designed for experienced Toastmasters who want to further hone their speaking and evaluation skills in an advanced setting. To facilitate this, an in-depth “Mastermind” evaluation process is applied to each speech and each evaluation in a roundtable format. This feedback extends beyond what is offered at many clubs because both the speakers and evaluators will receive a thorough and comprehensive assessment of their performance by fellow club members. At Seasoned Speakers, members will be provided with a positive and supportive learning experience in which they will be challenged to take their presentation and communication skills to a new level.
Meetings are currently held via Zoom every Tuesday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. With virtual meetings we have the benefit of welcoming participants from various places across Ontario as we are not constrained by geographic boundaries.
In terms of eligibility requirements, potential members must have completed two Pathways Levels or at least six speeches in the traditional program (Competent Communicator). Members must have previously been a member of a club or retain membership with their current club so as not to have
a negative impact on the growth of existing clubs.
Toastmasters International is offering a special incentive where they are waiving the new member and club registration fees. Therefore, our club dues from April 2021 to March 2022 are just $130.00 in Canadian funds.
Join now and be a part of making this Centre of Excellence a reality!
