” Secret Sauce” Themed Meetings

Greetings Toastmasters,
Have you ever had a special theme for your Toastmasters meeting that was still being talked about a year later as being memorable and fun? Would you like to put on 3 to 4 theme meetings a year that are so intriguing that all the members want to bring guests?
  Well,  that’s what will happen when you attend the June 25th workshop on “Creative Theme Meeting Planning.”   I have personally attended a few of Lynn Scardina’s theme meetings in her club and I was very impressed!  I actually requested Lynn to do this topic and she offered to share her “secret sauce” on how to put together these clever, innovative theme meetings. 
Lynn Scardina has been in Toastmasters for nearly 30 years. She started out in West Los Angeles just out of college in Toastmasters District One in her 20’s. Her old club was known as the best in the district and was always max’d out with 40 members in her 10 years in the club. They had a reputation for putting on the best innovative theme meetings.  Lynn moved to the suburbs and was a devoted Mom until Toastmasters District 33 called her back into the fold.
  • This workshop will be held via Zoom starting at 7 PM sharp on Thursday, June 25th.
  • Please RSVP as soon as possible to Lynn at in order to register.
  • You will receive the link to this meeting after you register. 
  • See the flyer for more information.
I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
