Early Edition Toastmasters

A great way to start your week!

You’ve been asked to give a presentation, propose a wedding toast, or be your best at a job interview?
Early Edition Toastmasters can help!


Practice and improve your communication skills while completing a range of projects in the Competent Communicator manual to gain the basic skills needed to present an effective speech.


Being a competent communicator is more than just being able to give a good prepared presentation. At every meeting, we are given the opportunity to become a better listener and conversationalist.


Each member helps play various roles in helping the meeting run smoothly.The projects in the Competent Leader manual help develop the basic skills needed to be an effective leader.


We practice speeches on sometimes topical (or offbeat) themes. By providing peer evaluations, we  have fun overcoming our fear of public speaking. Join us to help build confidence and grow your public speaking skills!

Come to a Meeting
You’re welcome to come to any of our meetings. No need to RSVP, just show up. We meet in a room at the South Surrey Arts and Recreation Centre. We are called Early Edition because our meetings start the week every Monday at 7am. (Holidays excluded)

Membership is Easy!
We invite you to visit our club three times to see if it’s a good fit for you. If you like us, you’re welcome to join us. The process is simple. You fill out a short membership form, and pay pro-rated membership dues. Toastmasters International will then mail you your materials and you’ll be started on your first speeches.

Personalized Support
Getting started can sometimes be the hardest part. If you’d like some individual help and support when you’re starting out, we’ll find a mentor for you. By having someone to contact, answer your questions, and help you reach your personal goals, you’ll quickly feel at home.



A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. Our group averages 20 members and meets bright and early on Monday mornings. A typical meeting lasts 60 – 90 minutes.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give ad-lib talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working through the Toastmasters online Pathways Program, a series of self-paced speaking assignments designed to build a basic foundation in public speaking.

Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles. In our learn-by-doing approach, we don’t lecture members about leadership skills; we give them responsibilities and mentoring to help. Then we ask them to lead.

Prepared Speeches

At every meeting we have 3 speakers give prepared speeches on a wide range of topics.

Table Topics

These two minute ad-lib speaking sessions are great practice for thinking on your feet.

Considerate Evaluations

Evaluations by fellow members are a chance to learn about strengths and areas to improve.

Seminars and Workshops

Opportunities for further education in collaboration with other Toastmasters Clubs.
