World-caliber speakers…

In just 2 months, Toastmasters will assemble from around the world in Vancouver, British Columbia. What would it be like to hear the contestants for the World Champion of Public Speaking award?

Here are the semifinalists, including a contestant from District 15 (our district, encompassing southern Idaho, northern Utah, and eastern Oregon).

Will you be going?

UPDATE: Early-bird prices end soon. July 3 … and booking of hotel by July 24 to receive the group rate. More info here.

PATHWAYS is coming

Pathways is the entirely new program — updating, in some cases, tracks that have been in place since the 1970s. THIS IS A HUGE DEAL!

Learn more about what’s right around the corner for you in your Toastmasters experience.

Visit the Pathways page on the Toastmasters website — complete with videos and tons of information. This will effect YOU!

(And bring your questions to the next River Speakers meeting. Melanie is our liaison for all Pathways questions.)
