GETTING STARTED

"The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch."

Jim Rohn

Guests are always welcome at Oak Bay Toastmasters.

Our club has a large, diverse and dynamic membership.  Ages range from 18 to 85, many occupations, many cultures! 

(Minimum age is 18).

Our 90-minute meetings are conducted in a supportive, positive, and fun atmosphere, which allows everyone to enjoy the evening while developing individual speaking and leadership skills.

Guests are invited to participate in the impromptu “Table Topics” session and to offer a short comment at the end of the meeting. 

As a guest, you will:

  • be greeted at the door and seated next to an experienced member;
  • receive a copy of the evening’s meeting agenda;
  • receive a guest package that gives you information about Oak Bay Toastmasters to take home with you;
  • be introduced to the group by a greeter at the beginning of the meeting;
  • and receive an email from the club executive to ensure your questions are answered.

As a new member, you will:

  • receive introductory information about the club structure and the Toastmasters International online educational program: “Pathways”;
  • be shown how to use the “Easy-Speak” website to confirm your attendance and your speaking roles at weekly meetings;
  • be assigned a mentor who will help you with your initial presentations and will act as an ongoing source of support;
  • receive a subscription to the “Toastmaster” magazine where you’ll find articles on how to improve your public speaking and leadership abilities.
