Become a More Effective Public Speaker
Whatever your goals, your success depends upon your ability to express your ideas clearly. Effective communication skills can help you get what you want.
The Mile Square Toastmasters club is the Hoboken, NJ (the "Mile Square City") chapter of Toastmasters International. We provide a safe and supportive environment in which to develop your public speaking skills -- no matter the level of your ability. Participation is optional, but it's always encouraged.
We meet at 7:30 PM every Monday (except major holidays), at The Hudson School, 601 Park Avenue, Hoboken, NJ. Mile Square is the home club of the District 83 Lt. Governor for Education, Brian Lin.
About Our Club
The Mile Square Toastmasters was chartered in 1996. Before moving to its current home at Hoboken's Hudson School, the group convened--for over eight years--at the Academy of the Sacred Heart on Washington Street. Before that, the club met at the uptown Hoboken YMCA and even a local bar (Lady Jane's).
Our club has an eclectic and lively group of members. The weekly gatherings are structured, with participants signing up for prepared speeches and meeting roles prior to the start of each evening's agenda. Although we adhere to many of the guidelines of the Toastmasters Program, we don't push such things as a dress code or the need to belong to any other specific group (e.g. Hoboken residents or corporate employees). Ours is a community club, with membership open to anyone genuinely interested in improving his or her speaking and leadership skills.
