Greater Issaquah Toastmasters honored
The Greater Issaquah Toastmasters has achieved Toastmasters International’s highest distinction for a fifth straight year.
To earn the distinction of President’s Distinguished Club, a club must meet at least nine of 10 challenging criteria.
In addition, members Dan Bone, Holly Greenspoon and Madeline Wall recently completed their Competent Communication Manual, which comprises the first 10 Toastmasters speeches, each focusing on development of a specific speaking skill. Upon completion of the Competent Communication Manual, members move into advanced manuals and are eligible for membership in advanced clubs.
