Boston Toastmasters (BTM) To Hold Open House & Celebrate 45th Anniversary on March 1, 2016

Boston, MA: Always wondered what goes on at a Boston Toastmasters meeting but never had the chance to come check it out? Come join us for our Spring Open House on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 at 6:15 pm, 635 Commonwealth Ave. Boston University Sargent College Building Room 102!

Our Open House is an opportunity for guests and members alike to come together to experience a Boston Toastmasters meeting from beginning to end. This event is intended to give prospective new members a chance to understand and experience the unique and fun environment that BTM offers, all while meeting new people, hearing inspiring speeches and even participating in activities. If you or someone you know has been thinking of attending but hasn’t been able to make it yet, this event is the perfect time and place to make it happen! Attendees will also have a chance to meet and greet club officers and other current members to ask questions, share thoughts, etc.

This year’s Open House on March 1st is particularly special because our club will also be celebrating our 45th Anniversary—and another year of achieving President’s Distinguished Club status—with a delicious potluck. Members and guests will have the opportunity to enjoy various home-cooked dishes and light refreshments while listening, learning, participating and having fun in a friendly and exciting environment. If you are either a member or guest and would like to offer to bring a dish for the potluck, please contact Ally Dunn at [email protected].

Chartered in 1971, Boston Toastmasters is one of the oldest Toastmasters clubs in Massachusetts. Throughout the years times have changed, and with them Boston Toastmasters. In fact, things looked dire for the club in the spring of 2011, when membership had fallen to just six individuals. However, with a new website and hard work from the club’s leaders, the group rallied—and grew exponentially. Just five years later, membership stands at 84 club members—one of the largest clubs in the US. Club initiatives like the Race to CC, the Leadership Accelerator Program, Role Raffle, Summer Picnic, Club Officer Training, Toastx, and Evaluation Workshop set it apart from thousands of other Toastmasters chapters in the US. As it nears the half-century mark, Boston Toastmasters continues to embrace new technology and approaches to help it fulfill the Toastmasters mission: provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

We hope you will join us on March 1st, 2016 at our Open House and 45th Anniversary Celebration!
