President’s Greetings

Welcome to Chamber Club 540!

Our club is one of the oldest Toastmasters chapters in Seattle. We regard this reputation with upmost respect by maintaining a fun & supportive atmosphere for new & experienced speakers alike.

We think of Toastmasters and we think of public speaking. And yes, there is plenty of that. Again and again, I hear members reiterate the same benefits I have discovered in my own experience. Increased confidence, self esteem, and strength. The ability to think on your feet. The sheer enjoyment of learning from others speeches! Member’s speeches range from personal stories to personal areas of expertise. I’ve learned about bugs, the chakra system, coping with death, the Minnesota State Fair, and the history of Monopoly…all in 2 weeks!

Another component of Toastmasters involves Evaluation. We practice receiving both positive & constructive feedback, which increases confidence. We practice our ability to provide positive & constructive feedback, a necessary skill for anyone who currently manages or hopes to manage others in the future.

I highly recommend Toastmasters in general to anyone who speaks to others on a regular basis, the time invested in the present will pay dividends for life.

Chamber Club 540 meets in the Greenwood Neighborhood and all are welcome.

From all of us at Chamber Club 540, feel free to drop by and see if we’re the club for you!
