When our current VP Membership, Veronica, joined the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Montreal Club in 2022, she initially found it challenging to understand the roles within our executive committee and to familiarize herself with each member.

In an effort to ensure all new members feel embraced, Veronica introduced a valuable initiative – the creation of a document titled ‘Meet our 2023-2024 Executive Committee!‘. This document provides insights into each committee member and the objectives they have given themselves for the club this year.

We even get a glimpse of Veronica herself:

Veronica joined Toastmasters to connect over our stories, our impassioned speeches, and a shared desire to continue to grow as people and as a community. She leads digital transformation and data management projects for small businesses and nonprofits.

Objectives this year: To create an environment where all members feel they have the space to develop and contribute their unique voice to our club. I strive to make sure that all guests who visit feel welcomed and included.

Come visit our club and see how our executive committee is helping our Toastmasters Club in Montreal to reach excellence in enabling all members to hone their public speaking and leadership skills. 

In October 2023, we proudly introduced our “Club Success” banner to track our journey towards achieving the prestigious Toastmasters President’s Distinguished Club status.

Since then, we have made significant strides towards this goal. We welcomed new members, witnessed members completing speeches at various levels, and demonstrated our unwavering dedication to excellence.

Nous avons l’habitude de demander aux nouveaux membres de nous partager les raisons qui les ont poussés à joindre notre club. Voici ce que Vahan mentionne :

Cela fait plusieurs années que je songe à rejoindre Toastmasters, et mon congé paternité me procure aujourd’hui une occasion de le faire. Mes trois rencontres en tant qu’invité m’ont convaincu que Toastmasters St. Lawrence est l’endroit idéal pour améliorer ma communication verbale et devenir un meilleur orateur. J’apprécie particulièrement la convivialité du club ainsi que l’expertise et la qualité des rétroactions des membres.
