Hello. I’ve been a member of DMS for three months. However, I’ve been visiting off and on for years.
This is my cordial invite for you to attend Toastmasters held every Wednesday evening from 7pm - 8pm. That’s right, it’s only an hour. The meeting is conducted the same way as all official clubs have been for the last 80 years. We’ve been endorsed by DMS cofounder @dougemes, who regularly attends.
Toastmasters allows you to get the public speaking practice you need in a supportive environment to teach your craft to more people.
Here is the calendar listing to register. https://calendar.dallasmakerspace.org/events/view/13841
You don’t have to register, you can just show up!
Toastmasters International is a US headquartered nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of promoting communication and public speaking skills.
Toastmasters International uses a local club-based structure, each having around 20–40 members. Meetings are held every week or other week and usually in the evening, although some clubs meet in the morning or afternoon.
Each club operates as a separate entity with a set of requirements leading to chartered status for them to be recognized as official Toastmasters clubs. Chartered status allows for clubs to use the names, promotional material and program.
About the Leaders
This 5th meeting is to start signing up members. From the first, second, third, and fourth meeting, we already know there is some interest. We will be conducting a regular meeting and will start on time.
I am a Makerspace member and President of the Thumbs Up Toastmasters Club of Irving/Las Colinas - #1415 | District 25
Some makers have much to share, but lack of public speaking experience may be holding back would-be instructors of craft. We’d like to solve that problem.
This club will meet once a week for one hour. There are officer positions available (must be nominated and voted on by official members) .
