4. 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.

5. Officers needed! Great Helmsmen just say YES!!

We will be having a (s)election of New officers for the July 1- December
31 term next

week. If you are interested in holding a position and will not be at
next week’s

meeting, please send e-mail or call one of the officers and let them
know you are

interested and what position you would like to have. Our club is led by
7 officers –

President, VP Education, VP Membership, VP Public Relations, Secretary,
Treasurer and

Sgt-at-Arms. Training is free at the Toastmaster Leadership Institute
and each officer

receives a (free) manual. Receive credit toward your Competent
Leadership award by being

an officer! 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.

7. Why not work on your leadership and speech awards simultaneously?
Don’t forget to bring in your Speaker and

Leadership manuals.

7a. You can get credit for being Toastmaster of the Day, Evaluator,
Table Topics master, Timer and many of the other

duties. Right after the meeting or during the meeting, ask your fellow
Toastmaster to provide a small evaluation in your

leadership book.

7b. We will try to provide a list of duties you have done since January
or since you joined and We can catch you up in

your Competent Leadership Manual. (A couple of you have already asked
and will be provided With the list of duties you

have performed at previous meetings.)

8. Guests (Past, Current, Future)
