Michael is a proud charter member of the Grand Orators Toastmasters Club in Grand Prairie, Texas.  This club was officially chartered February 20th, 2019.  One of the great attributes in Toastmasters is the ability to know that it is okay to fail.  Public speaking is one area Toastmasters helps with, but it is far from the only thing.  When you come to Toastmasters, you are welcomed to the club with a smile.  Club meetings are open to anyone.  Your opportunity for greatness is ahead and certainly would love for you to visit one of our meetings.  We are building up the club and have very exciting times ahead for this group.  We hope you can come visit.  Contact our club at
