Toastmasters International is a global organization whose purpose is to help its members become better communicators.  Whether your life requires you to give speeches, lead meetings, provide training, undergo job interviews, give a committee report, or just introduce one friend to another, Toastmasters can help you to improve your public speaking skills so that you can communicate more effectively and do so more comfortably.

Toastmasters provides these opportunities through its local clubs, and we feel Woodridge Toastmasters is one of the best.  We draw our members from Woodridge, Lisle, Downers Grove, Naperville, Bolingbrook, Darien and beyond.  We can help you:

Speak more confidently
Think better on your feet
Listen more effectively
Increase your earning power

Join us at one of our meetings and see what Toastmasters is all about.  Meetings are free for visitors and visitors are always welcome  

When: Second and fourth Thursdays of each month  (Click here for meeting dates.)  (NOTE:  We do not meet on the second Thursday of November or December, because our regular meeting date falls on or too close to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.)
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: *Woodridge Resource Center
8274 Janes Avenue
Woodridge, IL  60517

*Please also be advised that our regular meeting location, the Woodridge Resource Center, is a storefront situated right about in the middle of a small strip shopping center on the west side of Janes Avenue.  The shopping center is located on the NW corner of the intersection of Janes and 83rd Street, just across 83rd Street from the Walgreens. 

The storefront itself is poorly marked and has no sign on the facade of the building.  However, there will be a small Toastmasters sign in the window, so look for that to know you're in the right place.
