On Thursday, May 23rd, our next meeting will be an all-business meeting and pre-Memorial Day weekend potluck!
We'll use this business meeting to discuss a variety of topics such as but not limited to club officer elections, public outreach, membership growth, and yearly club goals!
This meeting can also become an informational event for visitors to attend and learn more about our club.
While bringing any visitors are welcome, a regular club meeting may be a better option for them to see Toastmasters in its full glory!
