Welcome to SEC Roughriders Toastmasters!

Wondering about the name? 

  • SEC stands for Sales Executive Club, a group of Sales Executives who wanted to improve their public speaking. 
  • Roughrider is the name of the room at the Roosevelt Hotel where the group of Executives began meeting back in 1956.
