Mission Chapter Toastmasters Mark 35th Anniversary

The Mission Chapter Toastmasters Club marked its 35th anniversary on April 17, 2014. In honor of the occasion, a commemorative meeting will be held on April 29 at The Salvation Army, 4849 Hollister Ave. in Goleta. Members of the public are invited to attend the event, and to learn more about Toastmasters by contacting Grace Rachow at [email protected] or 805.682.6943. Since 1979, the club has been dedicated to helping people become better speakers and leaders.

“Mission Chapter Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to overcome their fear of public speaking and sharpen presentation skills,” said Ron Guilbault, vice president of membership for the Mission Chapter. “Other benefits include the opportunity to increase one’s confidence, build critical thinking skills and become an effective listener.”

“Toastmasters has given me the ‘voice’ to address critical needs in our community, and it that has significantly elevated my professional visibility and leadership skills within my organization,” said club member Guille Gil-Reynoso, co-founder of the Santa Barbara Latina Leaders Network.

Chartered with 20 members in 1979, Mission Chapter Toastmasters, club number 1433, is located in District 33. The club meets at 5:50 p.m. each Tuesday at The Salvation Army, 4849 Hollister Ave. in Goleta, between Turnpike Road and Walnut Lane in Goleta.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
