 Message from Area 57 Director

 As Area 57 Director its my pleasure to serve our Toastmasters clubs in growth and continued success in 2017/2018. This year we are planning a few shared club events to continue our awareness in the community and give back. Toastmasters is an international organization that is dedicated to helping others strengthen their communication and leadership skills in a safe and fun learning environment. We are an exciting group that loves to talk and help others build their skills. Each club in the area welcomes visitors and new members, come out and see what we have to offer you.
