Open House a BIG Success!

Good morning, Toastie Peeps!

It's not really about toast!
It’s not really about toast!

Our open house was a great success. Thank you to everyone for their hard work. We had many guests — and had to drag out the extra chairs.

It was a lot of fun getting to meet all of the new people that came to visit.

If you’re thinking about visiting our Chippewa Valley Toastmasters, let us know! You don’t have to wait for the next open house. We’d love to see you!

Go Western!

After attending the 2015 Fall Conference in Milwaukee, WI, I was thrilled to find that Western Division (that’s us!) had an award for the most member retention.

It just goes to show that we DO have a lot to be proud of with our clubs. Thank you all — who make our warm, welcoming clubs what they are — amazing!

The Western Division Humorous Speech Contest and Tall Tales Contest was a success! Lots of work goes into making these contests — the Contest Chair, the Chief Judge, Judges, Ballot Counters, and Timers and others. Thank you to all who worked so very hard.

Also, thank you and congratulations to our contestants! It was very evident the hard work that you put in to make this contest your best effort.

Our 2016 Spring Contests are the International Speech Contest and the Table Topics Contest. Club contests begin in January and February with the Area Contests in March and the Division Contest in April.

If you want to push your public speaking to the next level, compete in the contests! If you love leadership, talk to someone about how you can help in a contest for your club, area, or … the division!

See you then!
