Invitation to Join GAHE’s New Toastmaster’s Club

Do you want to practice public speaking, improve your communication, and build leadership skills? GAHE is developing a virtual Toastmasters club and GAHE members and non-members are invited to be a part of our new virtual club.

In order to establish a virtual Toastmasters Club for GAHE, we need at least 20 GAHE members or non-members to join the club. We are asking those who are interested in Toastmasters to sign up as soon as possible so that we can gauge interest in the club. Our next meeting is on October 11  from noon to 1:00 PM via Zoom.

How to Sign Up for the Club
Toastmasters membership dues are $45 for 6 months, and there is a one-time new member fee of $20. Please follow the instructions below to sign up for the club:

  1. Download and complete the fillable membership application.

On August 10, we did a demonstration Toastmasters meeting with volunteers from Toastmasters. If you’d like to see the format of Toastmasters meetings, click here to view the video of that session.

Thank you so much for considering Toastmasters. We hope you will be a GAHE Toastmasters Chapter charter member!

In this short video, Darra Edwards and Larry Tyler invite healthcare professionals to join GAHE’s new Toastmasters chapter.

My Toastmasters Experience

Early in my career in healthcare, I was starting to get speaking requests and I wondered how I could increase my public speaking skills. Someone suggested that I join Toastmasters and I found the Sandy Springs chapter. The chapter was a mixture of amateurs like me and accomplished Toastmasters who were trying to keep their skills up and mentor us newbies. The development of my speaking skills led me to national speaking engagements and continuous presentations at ACHE Congress for 37 years.

Being in a helpful, friendly, and supportive environment can help even the shyest and most introverted person develop oratorical skills that will help further their career. I encourage you to join our efforts at GAHE to give you the support you need to further your career.
