Magic City Toastmasters Club to Meet Bi-Weekly at the Central Library Beginning March 11

The Magic City Toastmasters Club will begin meeting at the Central Library downtown beginning Monday, March 11, 2019. The meeting will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the 4th floor Boardroom.

The club will meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month, with the next session slated for the same time and place on Monday, March 25. After March, all future meetings will be held in the Central Library First Floor Conference Room.

According to its website, Magic City Toastmasters, also known as Club # 572, was chartered in 1948 and is  the second oldest Toastmasters club in Alabama.  Magic City Toastmasters is a member of Toastmasters International, a US-based nonprofit with clubs around the world that help members enhance their public speaking, listening, and leadership skills.

The March 11 and March 25 meetings will be informational sessions allowing prospective members to learn more about the club. Magic City Toastmasters is open to all with no membership restrictions. The club helps people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders. The mission of Magic City Toastmasters is to "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."

The Magic City Toastmasters Club will allow the public to attend three meetings as a guest. If an individual decides to join, he or she is responsible for membership dues, which covers the expenses of the online educational program. At each meeting, members can regularly practice communication and leadership skills, and receive support to help them become a more confident speaker and leader.
