The Toastmasters Experience

Toastmasters in our area (Green Bay, Wisconsin).

Toastmasters Logo

The Toastmasters experience takes place in a local club. In our area the only open-membership club is in Green Bay - Club 1350. This club has been meeting for more than forty years (although none of our current members have been with the club quite that long). 

We meet from 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of most months. We meet at the Days Inn, 405 Washington Street, in Green Bay. Visitors are welcome and no invitation is needed. If you are employed at Schneider International, there is also a club for their employees available.

While most of our members live or work in the Green Bay area, as of this writing there are members from Marinette, Oconto, Appleton, Kewaunee, Luxemburg, Manitowoc, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin and Menominee, Michigan. Some members drive more than two hours to attend our brief meetings because they find them that crucial to meeting their personal goals. If you would like to see why, you may want to visit us.

Visitors / Observers welcome

If you are interested in Toastmasters you are invited to visit one or more meetings to see how we help each other meet our communication and leadership goals. Click here for more information for visitors.

A typical meeting follows a standard format:

  • A short business session (which gives members a chance to practice parliamentary procedure).
  • A Table Topics session, giving members the opportunity to participate in impromptu speech situations.
  • Prepared speeches, based on projects from the Communication and Leadership manuals, from several of the Club members.
  • An evaluation session, during which each speaker is provided with valuable feedback regarding the strengths of the speech, and provided with information that will assist the speaker in problem areas.
  • A critique of the evaluations, and of the meeting as a whole, by a general evaluator.

Each member has many opportunities to interact and contribute.

Besides speaking, each member has the opportunity to serve as Toastmaster, Topicmaster, Evaluator, General Evaluator, Jester, and in other contributory roles. These opportunities are rotated among members to provide a variety of experience. All roles (including speaking) are voluntary and while members are invited to experience all Toastmasters has to offer, each progresses at his/her own pace.
