3. Mentors and Mentees – Let us know who you would like to be mentored by or be a mentor to. The TM education program and meetings have a lot to learn from and sometimes we need help with a speech, understanding the TM education program or have questions about how club meetings are run….so let us know. We’ll try to have a sheet at the meeting and ask that question to you.

Attached is a brief about positions. Take them with a grain of salt.

6. Duty Schedule sign up and how it works. We have a spreadsheet that goes around at the meeting to indicate what role you would like to perform at each meeting. The schedule goes out 4-8 weeks. Most importantly, we’d like you to let us know when you can give your next speech. Help us plan and schedule our upcoming meetings.

6A. Things change often so when you are ready to give your speech let the TM of the Day know.

New members join and we need to incorporate them into the schedule. As you can see, flexibility is the norm.
