Our club is a small part of the Toastmasters world!
As you make progress on your personal Toastmasters goals, you will have the chance to support the well-being and success of the club by actively participating during the meetings and acting as an officer.
At contests, you will compete against other Toastmaster members and gauge your performance through humorous speeches, evaluations, Table Topics, etc. Competitions help to break the weekly routine and provide great networking opportunities. SFTM prides itself as an award-winning club, and our members regularly compete up to Division and District levels!
Other special events include training/workshops (usually only for a modest fee), or social gatherings, all sponsored by your Area, Division, or District.
SFTM's VP Public Relations is known to always have exciting activities in the making... stay posted!
