Ridgewood Toastmasters was founded in May 1958. Since then it has grown and changed over the years as new members have been added and other members have left to pursue other goals. But one thing has remained constant. Ridgewood Toastmasters is a fun and easygoing place where its members can practice speaking and leadership at their own pace.
Ridgewood Toastmasters meets on the second and fourth Tuesday in the month at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Society Fellowship room in Ridgewood, New Jersey. If you are new to the area, looking for a place to practice your speaking and leadership skills, or just looking for a place to hang out and talk, Ridgewood Toastmasters is the place for you.
Our meeting goes from 7:30 to 9:30 PM most nights. There are usually five speeches, which can be about anything the member wishes to speak about. Then a fellow member evaluates them. In an evaluation the first and foremost job of the evaluator is to congratulate the person on giving the speech and tell him what was good about the speech and what could use improvement. The goal is for the member to keep getting better as he goes along.
So come and try Ridgewood Toastmasters and let us welcome you to a meeting filled with hospitality, laughter, and excitement. We bet you will not be able to stay away.
