Learn the Benefits of Toastmasters: Open House Sat., Feb. 7

Do you want to improve your communication skills? If you’re involved in a non-profit, most likely you will have opportunities to speak to groups of people, communicate your vision to donors, and share your experiences with the community. Toastmasters—the internationally renowned speaking club—provides an opportunity for you to practice and learn how to be a more effective communicator, listener, and leader.

Want to learn more? Then come to a special meeting called “How Can Toastmasters Benefit You?” to be held at the Columbia Center Toastmasters Club in Northeast Portland. There will be an opportunity to mingle afterwards, and refreshments will be provided. Be sure to mark your calendar and come! You won't be disappointed!
