Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. International membership is more than 352,000 members strong, and local chapters are currently realizing significant increases in their memberships. Toastmasters’ members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending club meetings at a variety of locations. There are opportunities to establish closed clubs for corporations, churches or other social groups. This enables a closer interaction with colleagues who share similar interests. Membership in Toastmasters is one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself. At $36 every six months, it is also one of the most
cost-effective skill-building tools available anywhere.
How Does It Work?
Participants in a Toastmasters meeting are given the opportunity to learn as they go by speaking in an atmosphere that is void of pressure and unfair judgment. Instead of being instructed, members evaluate one another’s presentations and give feedback. The feedback is part of the program’s success. All feedback is welcomed since it is presented in a very effective manner.
There is lots of fun to be had when participants give impromptu speeches on assigned topics. Skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedures are developed during meetings.
IREM Chapter 16 is excited to offer this opportunity to its members and Friends of IREM. IREM Chapter 16 Speaks! meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month (subject to change) in Owings Mills. The club is open to all property management professionals and Friends of IREM.
