Toastmasters Clubs practice the time-proven Toastmasters International program to improve communication, public speaking and leadership skills in a safe, supportive and fun environment. Members progress thru the Toastmasters manual of 10 speeches. When you complete the 10 speeches you become a CC (competent communicator) which you would put on your resume & employment record. It is recognized all over the world. All speeches are evaluated by other members. We also do table topics at each meeting, where each member and guest present is given an opportunity to speak impromptu for 2 minutes on a surprise topic. You can come as a guest as often as you like to see what it is like. Dues are $51 for 6 months plus a $20 one-time initiation fee. In India and China, Ford will pay your dues. In FNA, agency employees will often be reimbursed for Toastmaster dues by the agency company.
