We have 4 videos online covering the use of our social media accounts. You can view them here.

Note: If you need to use the Club's projector for an assignment, you will need to bring your own Laptop Computer with your file on it. If you are part of the speaking program, let your Toastmaster know that you will need the projector. The Toastmaster will arrange with the Sergeant at Arms and ensure the projector is available and ready to use before your speech begins.

Alternatively, to arrange the projector for an assignment at our Thursday evening meeting you should give the Sergeant at Arms not less than 48 hours notice prior to the regular meeting start time, i.e. 6.30pm Tuesday is the latest you can order the projector for the following Thursday.

Background to these assignment guides

Parramatta Toastmasters Club started producing guide sheets for members in the 1970s as did a couple of other large clubs. In 1982 Gary Wilson (as District Education Lt.-Governor) edited these into an 8 page document that was printed and sold through District 70 Supplies. A separate version was created for Parramatta Club and a revised version of that can be downloaded here.

Then in 2002/03 Demian Coorey as Past President used the material to create the current online guides for our club website, tailoring the material specifically for the culture and practices of our club.
