Getting Help From Others

To perfect, upgrade or maintain your presentation skills, I
strongly suggest you join one of these organizations.

Toastmasters International

The first Toastmasters club was established in California in
1924 by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley, a YMCA director. Today,
Toastmasters International has helped more than 3 million
people develop better communication and leadership skills.
There are now over 8,000 chapters with more than 180,000
members in nearly 60 countries.
     You will find clubs in most larger communities. There are
no individual instructors in any Toastmasters club. Members
evaluate each otherís presentations, and that is one reason
their annual membership fee is so moderate. The average club
has 20 to 40 members. They meet once a week.
     For more information check your phone book, call your
Chamber of Commerce, or contact the world office:
Toastmasters International
P.O. Box 9052
Mission Viejo, CA 92690-7052, USA
Phone (714) 858-8255
International Training in Communication

ITC was started in San Francisco in 1938 and now has a world-
wide membership with clubs in over 23 countries.
