Toastmaster

Taking on this role improves organization, time management and public speaking skills.

The Toastmaster is the meeting's director and host. A member typically will not be assigned this role until they are thoroughly familiar with the club and its procedures. As Toastmaster, you:

  • Acquire a meeting agenda from your vice president education.
    • Work with the General Evaluator to ensure all club participants know their roles and responsibilities.
    • Introduce speakers during the club meeting, including their speech topic, project title, objectives, delivery time, etc. during your introduction.
    • Ensure smooth transitions between speakers during the club meeting.
