Sioux Falls Club 210 is a place where everyone is welcome!
Toastmasters Club 210 meetings are casual and upbeat, organized and encouraging, including valuable, concrete feedback to help members take their leadership and communication skills to the next level. More "why" and details below!
It's important to us that our club says current with technology, something that other clubs struggle with. Technology enhances the membership experience and helps us connect with current, past, and future members.
This allows us to provide convenient, accurate, and timely communications which helps streamline every process from Member Experience to back-end procedures. Our use of Facebook, Paypal, Google Surveys, and Google Drive, are just a few examples.
Speaking of New Member Experience, we recently revamped and personalized the Mentoring profile and program to better fit the needs of our club, and create a more successful and individualized experience. This new mentoring process has received resounding success since implementation and been distributed throughout the Area for other clubs to use!

What our members say:
Toastmasters is most valuable to me because it provides me a safe and empowered space to learn, grow and fail forward on my journey as a public speaker. I get the most out of hearing the evaluation of prepared speeches and really enjoy being able to participate as an observer only or more if I so choose. The caliber of professionals and their level of effectiveness in their communication in Club 210 also is very attractive to me, as a somewhat confident public speaker, I am very pleased that I exposed to and get to learn from the more senior club members. They serve as professional communication mentors to me, officers in the organization inspire me to keep stretching and growing in my effectiveness as a messenger.
