The MIC also hosts Serving Up Hope, an event that brings hospitality organizations together toward the common goal of ending hunger in our community. Almost everything is donated and 100% of the proceeds benefit Food Bank of the Rockies and its Denver’s Table program.

Toastmasters International

Platform. Presentation. Communication. There are many ways to hone these vital skills. That’s why it’s common to see many Toastmasters members at NSA/Colorado events. And you’ll see many NSA/Colorado members – both aspiring speakers and professional speakers – honing their presentation skills at Toastmasters events.

Toastmasters clubs help their members improve their speaking, communication, and leadership skills. Members regularly give speeches, gain feedback, and offer constructive feedback in a supportive environment. Metro-Denver is host to multiple Toastmasters clubs. To find a club near you, visit

Come for the learning, stay for the networking!
