Twice each year Toastmasters clubs conduct contests — giving members a chance to stretch their skills, either as contestants or in a supporting role.
On August 25 we congratulated Cathy V. for winning first place in our River Speakers Club Table Topics contest for fall 2016. ** hurray!! confetti!! **
But did you know that’s just the start? All Toastmasters clubs are participating and this culminates in a final contest with winners from all regions around the world!
