Welcome to Metro Speakers Toastmaster Club!
We meet Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00 PM in the Community Room of Metropolis at Metrotown shopping mall (460 - 4800 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC, V5H 4N2). The Community Room is located within the shopping mall on the 4th floor (also known as the Office Galleria level) right above the Sears department store. The shopping mall is accessible via skytrain (Metrotown station), bus (Metrotown hub), and is only 15 minutes drive from downtown Vancouver. There is plenty of free parking.
Hand-outs for visitors and guests.
Guests, you may attend our meetings as many times as you wish. We don't want you to join until you are 100% certain that we are your #1 choice!
