About River Speakers

We meet in the Washington Group (URS) complex. We’ll have our Toastmasters banner up!

We’re an “open” club, which means that you don’t have to work for a certain company or agency or have any particular affiliation to participate and join. We want to be a professional resource for all employees in our complex (and beyond!) Please join us for a couple of meetings and learn how Toastmasters can improve your professional, communications, and leadership skills.

We usually meet in a conference room at 800 E. Park Blvd., Boise. Look for the Toastmasters bulletin board in the lobby with meeting location and agenda details.

If you’re coming from offsite:

  • Travel EAST on I-184, continuing on to W. Myrtle St.
  • Cross Broadway; Myrtle turns into Park Blvd.
  • Turn left into the Washington Group Plaza Parking.
  • Sign in with the security desk at 800 E. Park Blvd. The security officer can direct you to the meeting.

If you have any questions, email us.
