Rancho Santa Fe Toastmasters is holding a membership drive this month. The club’s lively meetings are held each Tuesday from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center. RSF Toastmaster’s goal is to help each other become confident conversationalists, better public speakers, and competent leaders. Everyone has had those awkward moments they’d like to forget! Now you can help yourself minimize the awkwardness and gain confidence speaking in every situation. Stop by next Tuesday to see how much fun everyone has!
Additionally, RSF Toastmaster’s November guest speaker will be Chris Murphy of CARR on Tuesday, Nov 5. This non-profit organization Consumer Advocates for Residential Care Facilities Reform (CARR) (rcfereform.org) is educating the public on residential living facility abuses. Murphy has appeared on PBS Frontline and is the author of a newspaper series titled “Life and Death in Assisted Living.” Murphy will cover issues such as staffing and training, outdated non-medical models, facility marketing campaigns, and elder neglect and abuse in residential facilities. You will want to hear how you can help change the way these facilities are governed. Space is limited; please e-mail Marybeth Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
