Five Tri-City Toastmasters groups will hold open houses Sept. 26-27.
At each meeting, the Toastmaster of the Day will explain the roles played by members to facilitate the meeting.
Attendees will hear short speeches by members at various experience levels. Evaluators will offer constructive evaluations of the speeches, and a general evaluator will comment on the meeting as a whole.
Guests also can experience table topics, where members give one- to two-minute impromptu speeches. Attendees are welcome to participate.
