Every Toastmasters club has a different "personality." By visiting different clubs you will find one where you feel most comfortable. That's the one you should join.

Our club's culture has evolved and has been supported by strong membership for more than 20 years.

  • We value our eclectic membership - Our membership is a tapestry of people from all walks of life, interests, ages, and goals. We thrive on our rich diversity!  We enjoy the challenge and the opportunity to learn from each other.
  • We value friendship and playfulness - When you visit our club, expect to meet a lot of friendly people. And certainly expect to laugh! You will develop a new network of friends who share your desire to enhance your speaking skills.
  • We value self-improvement - Whether your intention is to become the best speaker or leader you can be, or you just want to learn to keep your knees from knocking when speaking before  a group, you will have ample opportunity to learn from experienced members, and from detailed manuals that plot your development from the early stages to mastery.
  • We value mutual respect and encouragement - Whatever your goal is for becoming a member of the club, you can count on our support!
