Toastmasters Club making efforts to charter on Minot Air Force Base

Club will host open house Thursday night

Minot, ND - The mission of Toastmasters is to help people from different backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders.

Coming from diverse backgrounds is what makes Toastmasters different from other leadership groups.

It's a self-paced program for all kinds of personal or professional growth.

"Through the years, it's an awesome thing to watch, people grow for various different reasons that they come in," Toastmasters Division Director Sue Hamilton said.

Hamilton has been in toastmasters for more than 20 years and she now oversees 11 clubs in North Dakota and eastern Montana.

She said she initially began looking for help in the workplace and the benefits of being a Toastmaster member have stuck with her ever since.

As she and some others work towards chartering a group on the Minot Air Force Base, she wants people to know of the many aspects of Toastmasters.

Hamilton said, "Anybody that's interested in benefiting themselves. And that's the part that, to me, is so interesting. Again, it's not just communication skills and learning how to speak in public or an audience. It's, 'how can I express myself better? How can I maybe not use some words that I really just have a terrible habit of using?'"

Minot's Toastmasters Club will be holding an open house for anybody interested or curious in what they're all about. 

That's Thursday, October 12 at 6PM at the Vegas Motel.
