History of Our Club
The President’s Club Toastmasters of East Cobb consists of a group of people with diverse backgrounds and interests, but we all have the common goal of improving our public speaking skills in a highly supportive environment. About 25 members participate regularly in meetings. Some have years of experience, while others have just a few weeks. The President’s Club was chartered in Oct 1982. The first meeting location was in the President’s conference room at Oglethorpe University, resulting in the name of “President’s Club.” From there we moved to 3500 Piedmont Rd. in 1994, and in September 1994 we moved to our current location at the East Cobb Government Service Center and have been meeting there ever since. We are in District 44, Area 44 of Toastmasters, International.
In October 1924, a group of men assembled by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley met in the basement of the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, U.S.A., forming a club to afford practice and training in the art of public speaking and in presiding over meetings, and to promote sociability and good fellowship among its members. The group took the name “Toastmasters”. We are a local chapter of Toastmasters International.
Today, Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization which gives its members the opportunity to develop and improve their public speaking abilities through local club meetings, training seminars and speech contests. Toastmasters International includes more than 199,000 men and women in more than 9,300 clubs in more than 70 countries. Experienced professionals and beginning speakers alike can benefit from our practical, face-to-face learning program.
Whether you’re speaking to the board of directors, your customers, your co-workers or your kids, Toastmasters can help you do it better. You’ll learn and practice in a friendly, comfortable environment with people who are there for the same reason you are to become better communicators. At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment.
A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet once a week for about an hour. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation.
