Every year for the last two Wednesdays of January, and occasionally throughout the year, we get to try out different venues when our usual location is unavailable.
This is a wonderful opportunity for members and guests to experience what it’s like to get out of our comfort zones and stand in front of a new room. Do this often enough, you will become comfortable speaking in front of any room, regardless of setup, size or situation! We stay in flow; nothing fazes us.
And that’s how our last meeting on January 23rd went. We had a good turnout of members and many guests at a venue graciously hosted by Mary Lou, one of our long-time members. Instead of our usual boardroom style setup, we had the opportunity to be in a presentation style setup. Gertie, our Meeting Chair brought her enthusiastic energy for a fun meeting. Rowan, a member for only three months, regaled his Part One tale of misadventure travels. Lots more to come in Part Two on January 30th, Rowan assures us. We can’t wait to see how the story unravels!
Be sure to attend our next meeting at another (not-so-secret) location! We meet every Wednesday at 4 PM. Check our website www.vancoretoastmasters.com for current location. All guests are welcome!
