Why Toastmasters?

Do your knees feel like Gumby's when you have to get up and speak in front of a group? Do you feel like the next words out of your mouth are going to be the dumbest words ever uttered by a human?

If you said yes to either of the questions above, be advised, you have a full-blown case of stage fright, says Lenny Laskowski, a professional speaker and President of
LJLSeminars

Toastmasters is the best way to improve your communication skills. Toastmasters can help you lose the fear of public speaking and learn skills that will help you be more successful in whatever path you've chosen.

Coming Up Soon:
We are planning to post personal stories of our club members about how and why they joined Toastmasters International. Check our site for updates soon!


Terry Wang- President of the
Seven Seas club

"We learn something in every meeting
but the best of the meeting is that
we enjoy it and have fun."

Seven Seas Toastmasters Club 2005-2006

The Seven Seas Toastmasters Club was reborn from the OCA-NOVA Toastmasters Club in January 1994. OCA-NOVAToastmasters was chartered in 1991, supported by the members of theOrganization of Chinese American Northern Virginia Chapter. In 1993,due to lack of the member's participation, OCA-NOVA Toastmasters didnot conduct the Toastmasters meeting for more than 6 months. It reallyneeded a boost for the further survival.


In October 1993, Mrs. Hsu Terry Wang asked Mr. Homer Chen, DTM, to conduct an 8-week Speechcraft training Program from Toastmasters International Success Leadership and Communication Series manual. She recruited 16 participants including herself to attend the Speechcraft Program. All 16 participants had finished the program and graduated in December. It was a smashing success.

At the graduation ceremony, Mrs. Wang encouraged the fellow graduates to join Toastmasters to further their growth. With the guidance of Mr. Homer Chen, Mr. Charlie Hall, Ms. Fran Gedra-DTM (District 27 governor 1993-94), the group decided to reestablish the OCA-NOVA Toastmasters Club from ashes.

In January 1994, Hsu Terry Wang recruited a total of 26 members. The Group renamed the OCA-NOVA Toastmasters Club to The Seven Seas Toastmasters Club. The Toastmasters International head quarter awarded a Phoenix Award to Mrs. Hsu Terry Wang and the Seven Seas Toastmasters club in recognizing their outstanding achievements. Mr. Homer Chen and Mr. Charlie Hall served as the Club mentors. Mrs. Hsu Terry Wang was elected president for 2 terms in the first 2 years. Among the 26 founding members, Jean Freemen-ATM-S, Ying Chen-CTM, and Charlie Hall-DTM, and Hsu Terry Wang-DTM are still with the club today. They have been served as the club officers, mentors, and area governors to help the Toastmasters continuously since the club reestablished eight years ago.

The club carries the mission of Toastmasters International to serve all ethnic groups from the whole globe. The club devotes to "help men and women learn the arts of speaking, listening and thinking-vital skills that promote self-actualization, enhance leadership potential, foster human understanding, and contribute to the betterment of mankind." The club is also to "provide a mutually support and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth."


Other than scheduling an educational session in each meeting, the club also collaborated with the New World Bilingual Institute, a nonprofit organizational institute, to develop the ongoing training program in helping the adults and youth to learn the arts of leadership and Communication. They have conducted more than 25 Speechcraft programs, 50 youth leadership programs and numerous leadership and Communication workshops for the club, organizations, cooperates, schools, universities, and the communities here in the Unite States and overseas.

Today, the Seven Seas Toastmasters club remains strong with 20 members. It has been awarded as Distinguished club or Selected Distinguished each year for 7 years. The club had achieved 9 out of 10 Distinguished Club goals in the year of 2002-2003. It would be honored as the President Distinguished Club.

In 2002, three members of Seven Seas (Bennett Crawford, Richard Castell, and Art Kelly) reached the Division level in the International Speech Contest and two of them reached the District level. It is extremely unusual for ANY Toastmasters club to have three different speakers go so high in competition at the same time. Richard and Art were representing other clubs at the time, but the point is that Seven Seas has a lot of good speakers in it.

Also, for two years in a row, different members of Seven Seas have won the Area International Speech Contest: Bennett in 2002 and Art in 2001. Someone who joined our club would be exposed to some very successful speakers.
