Rose City Toasters Open House @ Columbia River Correctional Institution
Dec 6 @ 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Come support one of our prison clubs as they promote themselves to their fellow inmates. The Open House will be in the chow hall at Columbia River Correctional Institution and will include the option for visitors to purchase a dinner of rotisserie chicken, dinner rolls, and mac & cheese. The price for the dinner is to be determined and would need to be paid in advance (November 22 I think), but people also have the option to attend the Open House for free. Guest attendance is capped at 40 people. Advanced screening may be required if you haven’t visited this prison club before.

I will update this announcement as I receive more information from the event organizer.

From Cold Calls to Club Growth! @ Online via zoom - see details below
Aug 5 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

From Cold Calls to Club Growth! For all District 7 Toastmasters!

Cold calling can seem intimidating – calling strangers and inviting them to collaborate with you may seem scarier than doing your first Ice Breaker speech – but think about the benefits you’ve already received from that first step. This experience will be even more intense and the benefits just as valuable!

Join Past International Director, Jim Kohli, DTM, and learn how to use cold calls to 1) grow new clubs, 2) build self confidence, and 3) develop career skills that can be used in a variety of ways. Jim will walk you through a cold call process, then offer tools, best practices, and practical scenarios to help you get started on an activity that will help you and help District 7 Toastmasters. Join us!
