The Official Toastmasters International Members Group on Facebook is always filled with conversations started by and for members. Tim Patmore, of Didcot Speakers Toastmasters Club in Oxford, England, asked this question:

 

“Anyone have tips for drumming up lots of guests for face-to-face meetings?”

 

One idea that’s worked well in my clubs: a new agenda role, the “guest master.” Their meeting duty is to bring one guest to the meeting and introduce them around.
