WELCOME TO NETIZENS ONLINE!
The FIRST chartered fully online community Toastmasters Club!
Netizens Online Visitor Information #1 – Club Info
Thank you for requesting information about our Netizens Online Toastmasters Club!
Our club is a community club which means it is an open club and anyone can join.
The format of our Netizens Online meetings is the same for a regular club. The difference is learning how to use a web cam and headset effectively. Giving speeches using the web cam to show gestures and body movement is much more challenging (but doable!), and you get to interact with people all over the world!
Most web cams work fine. It is best to have a headset for audio. Using the computer speakers creates an echo in the system.
If you have an easy-Speak login, let us know what it is so we can add you to our list of visitors.
We meet the 1st & 3rd Sunday of every month at 17:00 GMT/UTC to 18:00 GMT/UTC.
