Welcome to
WRIP CITY Toastmasters

Do you get nervous when asked to speak in front of an audience?
Are you interested in improving your speaking skills?
Would you like to relax and have fun among friends?

We invite you to visit WRIP CITY Toastmasters.

What is Toastmasters?
Toastmasters is an international organization of local member-led clubs.  In each club, members practice speaking, listening, and leadership.  We give and receive positive feedback which helps us improve our communication skills.  Visitors are encouraged to attend club meetings to see first-hand what it's all about.  Visitors don't have to speak if they don't want to!

What are
meetings like?
Each meeting has these common elements:
  • Introductions of meeting participants and visitors
  • One or two prepared speeches, each typically 5 to 10 minutes.  These could be serious, humorous, informative, or "all of the above"!
  • Table Topics (impromptu speaking opportunities)
  • Evaluations of prepared speeches and other speakers
  • Fun!  (Joke, Word Of The Day, etc.)
Visitors are welcome at our meetings!  Come see for yourself what Toastmasters is all about.
When? Meetings are held on Monday evenings from 6:45 until about 8:15 pm.
Where? We meet at DeVry University, 9755 SW Barnes Road, Portland, Oregon.  This is at the north end of Hwy 217 at Hwy 26, just west of Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. 
How do I
get there?
We're conveniently located near the intersection of US Hwy 26 and Oregon Hwy 217.  Take the Barnes Road exit off of Hwy 26.  At the traffic light you'll see Providence St. Vincent hospital toward the right.  Sort of in the middle you'll see an office building that says 9555 at the top, and to the left of that you'll see a building with W&H Pacific and 9755 at the top.  We meet in 9755, the westernmost office building.  At the driveway to the west of 9755 is a traffic light and a wide brick sign that says Peterkort Centre.  Park in the parking lot behind the building.  Until the meeting begins a Toastmaster will be stationed at the glass doors to let you in.
