While Talk for Change Toastmasters has had a really great run with our meetings in the American Public Power Association conference room, we just received word that the APPA is moving and we’ll need to meet in a new space in September 2014.
APPA has generously provided the space free of rent. Ideally, we’d like to find a space that can seat up to 30-40 people in Dupont Circle. We average about 15-20 people a meeting.
