Earlier, on August 3, 2019, Toastmasters Mahesh Mahato and Rabindra Pradhan organized an orientation program for the potential members. It was a successful event in terms of participation, management, and enthusiasm. More than 50 prospective invitees gathered from Bhaisepati and nearby places. Area Director (AD) Ravi Mainali who is also in charge of overseeing the club formation process made a captivating presentation explaining the history, development, and functioning of Toastmasters International and its network all over the world. He also talked about the present status of toastmasters clubs in Nepal and how one can be a member and benefit from it. He made a compelling case and the result was for everyone to see. In no time more than 20 eager participants expressed their interest to join the club.
In the meantime, a demo-meeting was held on August 17, 2019 for the confirmed members to explain them about the different role plays, Pathways Program, and standard practices of an ideal club meeting. Once again, AD Ravi Mainali took the onus and created a great learning experience for everyone.
