About Us

Our Club 

We are a club of all ages, professions, and backgrounds. We enjoy getting together twice a month to help one another improve our public speaking and leadership skills. We currently have around 20 members, meaning that we get to speak in front of a reasonably-sized audience while not having so many members that it's hard to get a speaking slot. We take our learning seriously, while making sure that we laugh a lot at each meeting. Come visit us in the Mission-Dolores neighborhood of San Francisco.

Here are some of us hanging out at our recent holiday party and some of us putting our skills to work.


Club History

Chartered in February 2009, our club was the vision of the late Robert "Bob" Lando, who founded the club along with members of the Mission / Dolores community. Bob, a Distinguished Toastmaster, had been a Toastmaster for some time. As a former Navy Beachjumper and active District 8 American Legion member, Bob was always ready to put the skills learned in Toastmasters to the test whenever someone needed a speaker. He wanted the club to be educational and fun.
