District 48 Members Speak Up About Their Experiences.

“Awkward moments tend to erupt from a loss of words, not knowing what to say, or just plain saying it the wrong way. I often found myself witnessing these moments or causing them. Thank goodness I attended a Toastmasters meeting and joined! Toastmasters provided a fun safe place to find the right words to say, practice different ways to say them, and deliver them with ease. If you’ve had an awkward moment or two, have no fear, Toastmasters is here for you! ”

LaShawna Lueallen (Franks)

“Because I am so passionate about the REP and where it is headed, my enthusiasm can only ignite the passion of others.”

Ed Wedler, DTM

Positively Speaking Toastmasters

I have found Toastmasters to be an excellent value in my personal life as well as my professional career.  It truly is a family that cares about helping others.

David C. Klopfenstein, ATMS, ALB

“Toastmasters builds our confidence. Risking and succeeding in a “safe” environment is the key. That is Toastmasters for me.”

Sandra Moulin

Herald Tribune Advanced Toastmasters

“For anyone who has a fear of speaking, there is a safe place to speak out and learn while gaining confidence. It’s the best kept secret so let’s get the word out there.”

Rhonda Brazina

“Leadership and effective communication may seem natural to some people, but I have seen the power of these skills as learned behavior through participation in an extremely supportive environment. Toastmasters has enhanced my communication skills while providing me valuable networking opportunities.”
