After Speechcraft we are back to regular schedule!



Last meeting on Wednesday April 9th we had two speeches, one by Monica Malhotra and the second one by Kris Krishna. Monica gave a wonderful speech on stress management called “Put the glass down”. It was from the Competent Communications Manual.

Kris gave a speech on “Wind Energy Producibility” as part of the “Technical Presentations” from the Advanced Communication Series Manual.

Wendy Marano evaluated Monica’s speech and Whitney Zeldow evaluated Kris’ speech

Don Howell was Table Topics Master on the topic of “Earthquakes”. Yumi Kushi was the General Evaluator, Yas Osako the Timer and Soaliha Lakhani the Ah counter. 

Jean Kilroy was the Toastmaster for the day and she awarded the La Palma Trophy to Kris Krishna, pictured above!

La Palma Toastmasters Has a New Location…in Buena Park

We are now meeting again on Wednesdays 6:25 – 7:25pm at Buena Terra Elementary School, in the multipurpose room right next to the entrance/parking lot. The parking lot is off Holder St. The address is 8299 Holder St, Buena Park, CA 90620.

This location and time will be ours up until June 4, 2014. It will be summer break then (for the kids, not Toastmasters) and we’ll probably meet at a new location.

Want to learn rapidly? Go to LACE training on Saturday, Jan 18th

LACE training is an all day event that our club officers attend, but is also open to any member of Toastmasters. It only costs $12 for a full day of training, plus lunch.

Most of our officers are going to the Biola University day, and you can go too if you register by the end of the day on Wednesday.

Go here to find out what kind of courses they offer:

I’ll be attending the following courses:

  • The Art and Science of Effective Evaluation – gotta train for when I’m a BOSS someday
  • VP of Public Relations training – MANDATORY FOR ME
  • lunch – best part
  • Use Table Topics to get your new job/promotion – I plan on being promoted to CEO
  • A fun group is a thriving group – I want to be fun!
  • Advanced VP of PR training – I like to sneak into these suckers

Angie is teaching a course called Toastmasters for Dummies, so that should be fun too!
