TMA (Thaqalayn Muslim Association)
The Thaqalayn Muslim Association was founded in early 2012. The club was formed by a group Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim students in response to a lack of an official support network for the post-secondary Shia Muslim students in the Kitchener-Waterloo region. Although the headquarters of TMA Waterloo's activities is the University of Waterloo's main campus, the TMA aims to be accessible to all post-secondary students in the region. Thus, the TMA Waterloo’s purpose is to cater primarily, although not exclusively, to the needs of the Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim post-secondary students at the University of Waterloo, and the surrounding region, while simultaneously representing their collective voices and pursuing their ideals.Learn more
Looking to develop speaking and leadership skills? Ace a job interview? Ignite your career?
Toastmasters International (TI) is a world leader in communication and leadership development. UW Toastmasters is a TI chapter that is filled with inquisitive and enthusiastic members. We bond and learn together at weekly meetings (Thursdays 5:25 - 6:40pm), competitions, workshops, and social events.
How Does It Work?
A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.
Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members go through a journey of personal and professional development by working through Pathways, an education program designed to develop competencies in communication and leadership.
Guests and visitors are welcome to come to as many meetings as they want before deciding whether to join as formal club members.
