What are you doing on Thursdays at lunch?

Are you a current, past, or retired municipal or regional government employee from
• Town of Newmarket
• a ‘N6’ municipality
• York Region
• CYFS
• YRP
• YRPS (formerly EMS)?

Interested in developing your communication and leadership skills? Then TNT is the place to be!

Whether you are a current employee for a local municipality/York Region or a front line emergency services worker, worked as a camp counselor for one of Newmarket’s summer camps as a student in the past, or are a retired staffer for YRP – The Newmarket Toastmasters are here for you!

The Newmarket Toastmasters (TNT) will help improve your communication skills and open doors in your personal and professional life. Instead of labouring in a classroom or spending money on costly seminars, you’ll learn and develop communication and leadership skills through a peer-led, self-paced program within a friendly, supportive environment with people who are there for the same reasons you are – to become better communicators and leaders.

TNT meets for one hour every Thursday at 12:00 Noon at the Newmarket Municipal Offices (395 Mulock Dr) Usually in the Cane Meeting Room. Attendance is at the individual’s discretion as, due to work and other lunch-time commitments, it is not always possible to attend every meeting.

Bring a lunch and be a guest at our next meeting, we would love to see you!
