The success of a club meeting depends on the participants. At each meeting, there are many roles to fill and they play an important part in making the club experience enjoyable.
Toastmaster of the Day
The Toastmaster is the meeting’s director and the host works as the master of the ceremony for the meeting.
Every speaker is a role model and club members learn from one another’s speeches.
Evaluators provide verbal and written feedback to meeting speakers according to the friendly and to-the-point evaluating system of Toastmasters. Taking on this role improves organization skills, time management, and facilitation skills.
The purpose of the Ah-Counter is to note any overused words or filler sounds.
The Grammarian helps club members improve their grammar and vocabulary and usually provides the word of the day; a word that members and guests are called to use during the meeting and beyond.
The Timer times speakers use a specific system to alert the speakers when they are on time, when they are about to finish and when they need to wrap up. Taking on this role improves time management skills.
