NEW TRICKS: Roma and District Toastmasters Club president Ray Howson discusses plans for the 2018 Toastmaster Year with David Bowden.

MEMBERS of the regional Toastmasters Clubs came together over the weekend to get a jump-start on 2018, as they worked to complete their club officer training using the new Zoom online system.

The Toastmasters syndicate is a non-profit educational organisation that aims to help members improve their communication, public speaking and leadership skills.

Members of the area's 31 clubs, which include Roma, St George, Tara and Goondiwindi, were able to participate in the online course, with the training co-ordinator conducting the lessons online.

The course ran over five hours, with the online system helping to unite the regional clubs, saving members travelling and accommodation costs.

The course focused on the new pathways system of training men and women in speech development, meeting procedures and Leadership. All new members will now have access to this training.

The Roma and District Toastmasters Club welcomed new member Jack Hewitt at the last meeting. Mr Hewitt will be the first to use the new pathway program.

Roma Toastmasters is searching for new members, with meetings held on the first, third or fifth Thursday of each month.
