Next meeting, Wednesday 9 November at 7:30pm

09217ce336fe7b4f8c3c91280fd28e79There are not many meetings left for 2016, so make sure you pop on down before our January break. At our last meeting our impromptu skills were put to the test with an ‘impromptu agenda’ – everything was “off the cuff” including our tabletops and the speeches. It was challenging but everyone excelled at the tasks they selected.

Tonight we are back to a normal agenda and have three speakers locked in as well as our regular table topics, rollings stories, jokes etc. We will be commencing at 7:30pm but feel free to stop by earlier for a meal. Committee members we will be meeting at 6:30pm tonight for a brief catch up.

Semi-Annual Conference:
The 2016 D73 Semi-Annual Convention will be held on Saturday 12th November at the Parkroyal Melbourne Airport from 9am (registrations start at 8.30am).

If you have never been to a Toastmasters Semi-Annual or Annual Convention this is the time to start!! There are loads of workshops to attend. Many focus around public speaking skills, but in keeping with this year’s theme – Be the Change there are also many general personal development sessions. You can find out more at:
