Mandarin Toastmasters Club recently celebrated its 10th anniversary as a non-profit educational organization that helps members improve their communication, public speaking and leadership skills.  The club is part of the Toastmasters International organization and has helped to develop and fine tune verbal communication skills for countless members and visitors.

Members are encouraged to participate in short prepared speeches and impromptu dialogues, which enhance listening, thinking and speaking skills.  Prepared speeches typically range from five to seven minutes in length, while impromptu dialogues target a one- to two-minute response.  These speaking opportunities help an individual to better express themselves in both personal and professional settings.
Mandarin Toastmasters attracts a diverse group of members and visitors including both blue- and white-collar workers as well as homemakers and students with the common desire to improve verbal communication skills. The club actively seeks new members that share this goal and networks with other clubs as well.
Annual membership fees are minimal and include instructional manuals, which help members enhance communication techniques.
Meetings are held at the Mandarin Library, 3330 Kori Road, on the first and third Saturday of each month from 10:15 a.m. – 12 p.m. Visit for more information or contact Laura Lopez (VP Membership) at or (904) 616-7632.
