Message from the President – January 2018
Winter is in full swing at Sears-Halifax Toastmasters. While it may be chilly outside, our Thursday night meetings are warm and welcoming for all ages, backgrounds and speaking abilities.
Our members have been busy with completing various educational and leadership projects. Some notable speech projects taught us about cardboard boat racing; the importance of giving blood; a key figure from the 1908 Halifax Explosion; and the insider secrets of pizza delivery. New members are trying out different meeting roles, with more experienced members supporting them along the way. Most importantly, our Speechcraft project with Open Door Center is in full swing, with participants learning valuable public speaking and evaluation skills and coordinators learning effective leadership, planning and organization skills.
If your New Year’s resolution is to improve your public speaking or leadership skills, you’ve come to the right place! I encourage you to browse our website and Facebook page, and contact me or our VP Membership if you have any questions.
We hope to see you soon!
President, Sears-Halifax Toastmasters Club, 2017-2018
