Minutes of May 26, 2016 Toastmasters Business Meeting of Metropolitan 1696 and Speak Up & Out 2509, which was held at Rice Street Library after the regular Toastmasters meeting.
Club president Frank Mayers conducted the meeting.
Frank reminded members of the importance of responding to the following periodic requests for information:
– Respond to weekly email messages from the Toastmaster to confirm attendance at the next meeting.
– Respond to planning email messages from the Educational Vice President to indicate which meetings you plan to attend over the next six weeks.
Frank summarized for guests some introductory information about Toastmasters:
– A coach/mentor is assigned to new members.
– Two speech manuals are provided to new members: Competent Communication (the first manual level for speeches) and Competent Leadership (the first manual level for club/meeting leadership and evaluation activities).
We are currently planning to have a Toastmasters meeting on July 7th. However, if too few members confirm their attendance (presumably due to holiday activities), the meeting will be canceled ahead of time. Members are encouraged to check their emails on the Monday and Tuesday preceding the July 7th meeting.
Meeting was adjourned.
The Metropolitan club secretary, Stuart Chastain, recorded minutes.
