Rome Georgia Toastmasters invites residents to its open house March 2 to meet members and hear special guest speaker Cheryl Boncimino, Division E Director for District 44.
“Rome Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” says Julianne Meadows, Rome Club President. Members and guests will enjoy a typical Toastmasters meeting, including a prepared speech by Ms. Boncimino, Table Topics™ (impromptu speeches), and evaluations.
Club Secretary Lynn Sprayberry will be the Table Topics master. “The Table Topics portion is one of my favorite parts of the meeting,” says Sprayberry. “This is where guests and members speak for one to two minutes without preparation. It helps you think and speak clearly on your feet.”
Guests will also include Lin Stokes, Area 52E Director for District 44, who will be able to answer any questions attendees may have about the Toastmasters program.
The open house is set for 6 until 8 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church-Mobley Hall, 606 Turner McCall Blvd, Rome. For more: Kayla, Hartmann at firstname.lastname@example.org. Toastmasters Club #1844 meets every second and four Monday at 6 p.m. at the Rome/Floyd Library.
