About the proposed GGC club
- Who? Membership will be open to GGC students, staff, and faculty
- What? The mission of a Toastmasters Club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
- When? Most Toastmasters clubs meet weekly or bi-weekly. Hopefully, by the end of Spring 2008 semester, we will be able to establish a regular meeting day and time. For now, a series of organizational meetings are planned to
- Begin practicing speaking and leadership skills
- Introduce the GGC community to Toastmasters
- Determine club name and dues
- Complete necessary forms to charter a club (both at GGC and with Toastmasters International)
- Elect acting officers
- Determine meeting time and frequency
- Help publicize the club to increase membership
- Determine whether to start a Gavel Club or formal Toastmasters Club
- Learn by doing, not listening to lectures
- Learn how to prepare for class presentations
- Increase confidence when responding to impromptu interview questions
- Network with other area Toastmasters clubs
- Practice running effective meetings
