Mary, I had no idea Toastmasters has been around so long.  I found one not far from us but haven't found the time to look into it...yet :)

Mary,

 

I wasn't aware that it had such a long history. It has been very successful and has helped many individuals become polished speakers.

Carole--Like you joining had been one of those things on my list.  Well, now I am glad that I did it.  Give it more thought.  It does help in subtle ways to build confidence.

Brian--I didn't either until I became Public Relations VP.  I know it will help me, too, and it's fun.

Diane--I sure am a member.  I went to baby shower on Sunday and talked to a woman about the group.  I am amazed at the interest in the group.

Hi Mary, I'll have to see if there's a Toastmasters in Valparaiso.  I really don't have a clue if they even exist in my area.  Have fun at your next meeting.

Irene--You can go to their website to search for meetings.  If there is none consider starting one.  We have a few real estate agents who want to impove their presentation skills.  I wish you lived closer.  I would love to have you & your fellow agents come to our meeting.  Mary
