I have been a member since 2012. I joined to help improve my speaking skills but what I did not expect was the leadership development as well as the many friends I would make. I have held many leadership positions and have also been fortunate to represent the club in the 2013 state humorous contest where I placed 2nd. I have also finished first in the 2015 and 2018 District 16 Evaluation contest. Since joining I have experienced many professional and personal successes which I credit Toastmasters for but even after multiple years I still discover areas where I need to continue to improve. I call our meetings my weekly dose of self-confidence. I highly recommend Toastmasters as a way to help improve oneself.
