We are very excited to announce that it’s official!!! The PMI® CVC Toastmasters Club has been chartered and is now an official club within Toastmasters International.
The Club’s officers are:
President, Jack Townsend
VP Education, Elizabeth Micalizzi
VP Membership, Carl Bess
VP Public Relations, Steven Glissman
Secretary, Ellen Kowalski
Treasurer, John Plewa
Logistics Director, Lloyd Arnold
Although the club is sponsored by PMI® CVC, it is “Open” to everyone who is interested in Toastmasters. The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
Toastmasters is a natural adjunct to PMI® since all project managers need speaking and presentation skills. Let’s hope all PMI’ers look into joining Toastmasters. Congratulations to the team for persisting over the last year to make this a reality.
The Toastmasters Club meets twice a month at the Martin's on Staple Mill Road. You can find the next Toastmasters event listed in the PMI® CVC Events calendar.
