History

The Golden Eagle Toastmasters was chartered in 1992. Our club's motto is Excellence through Enjoyment. This brief motto describes succinctly its role in providing an empathetic, friendly but stimulating atmosphere to encourage anyone interested in developing or improving their public speaking skills to do so within the framework of a community based, purely voluntary organization. Under its umbrella body, Toastmasters International, this club encourages anyone to practice and develop communication skills among friends within a formal format. The dedication of experienced members linked to the willingness of all provides the forum to remove the fear of public speaking, develop friendships and network at the same time. Individuals can feel challenged in a positive spirit to follow the speaking and leadership tracks and receive formal and informal recognition in the process.

Members start off with the Communication and Leadership manual. A member is designated with CTM (Competent Toastmaster) at its completion. From there, members are encouraged to follow 2 tracks: the Communication track which includes ATM Bronze, Silver and Gold, and the Leadership track which includes the CL (competent leader) and AL (advanced leader). When a person has completed all of these levels, they earn the designation of DTM, (distinguished toastmaster). A number of members have achieved their DTM as members at Golden Eagle Toastmasters. Furthermore, members have endless opportunities to develop leadership skills by taking executive roles in our club from being Club President to Sergeant at Arms.

Come as a guest. See what it is all about and have fun whatever your commitment. Remember the club motto because it really works - Excellence through Enjoyment!
