What Happens at a Toastmasters Meeting?

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. Typically, meetings are bi-monthly and last 60–90 minutes.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics (since this is a PMICVC sponsored club, the topics are typically related to project management), conduct meetings, and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar, and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.

Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and working in the Competent Leadership manual. In our learn-by-doing approach, we do not lecture members about leadership skills; we give them responsibilities and mentoring to help. Then we ask them to lead.
