Voyagers Get Involved

Voyagers Toastmasters Club Debates Three State Propositions

Date: November 1 – Time: 7:00 – 8:30 AM
Place: Friendship Hall at University Christian Church, 3900 Cleveland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103

Voyagers Toastmasters (located in the Hillcrest – Normal Heights area of San Diego) announces a special program targeted to local politics. Helping voters understand the issues, just days before the actual election, Voyagers will be examining three of the most critical state propositions – Prop 6, 8 and 10. Gas Tax, Dialysis Pricing, and Rent Control.

This will be fun as we examine what exactly these propositions are all about and discuss their pros and cons, especially how they affect you.

Free and open to all in the community, this special program will feature some of our club’s top speakers. And since this is a 7 AM meeting we always have free coffee and snacks!

This program is a great introduction to Toastmasters, the international non-profit organization known as the best place for public speaking and leadership training.

To reserve your spot, or for more details about this special program, please contact: Safwan Ahmed – Vice President of Membership – at (682) 234-1656 or online at hal@halslater.com

Voyagers Toastmasters – June 28 Meeting

Voyagers Toastmasters – June 28 Meeting

We had a very exciting and action packed meeting. No, we didn’t get attacked by dinosaurs or have a volcano vent explode under our meeting location, but we did welcome in our new Board of Officers. Weeeee.

Mark S as VP PR, Mark I as Sergeant of Arms, Safwan as VP Membership, John W as Treasurer, Maria F as VP of Membership.. and drum roll please, Hal as a President.

With this line up of officers, we will be having some dynamic and maybe even controversial meetings!

The June meeting had some wonderful high spots – Maria F got her CTM – Competent Toastmaster – we knew she was good but now its official.

San Diego’s Voyagers Toastmasters Features Darren LaCroix

Meet the World Champion of Public Speaking

 

Darren LaCroix, 2001 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking, will be at Voyagers,

Darren LaCroix, 2001 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking, will be at Voyagers, one of the most dynamic and most experienced Toastmaster Clubs in San Diego County on Thursday, March 28th at 7:00am PDT.

This is your chance to meet Darren and find out a little of what it takes to become a World Champion speaker. In addition, you will have a chance to hear Mark Epstein as he delivers his local award winning contest speech… then be “evaluated” by Darren… helping him improve on his journey to the world title in August.

In 2001, Darren LaCroix, out-spoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win that title. That 5-7 minute speech was just a benchmark. Since that victory, Darren has traveled the globe demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has roused audiences in faraway places like Saudi Arabia, China, Oman, Malaysia, and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first-rate chump to first-class champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.

Darren is known as the person who helps speakers launch their careers in professional speaking. His trademarked program Get Paid to Speak by Next Week® has helped many speakers launch their very first checks. He also supports speakers doing business coaching through his internet program, Get Paid to Speak TV.
