Hi All,


Next week, for Meeting 2599, July 28, 2011, your Toastmaster of the Day will be Mike Santivasci or Beth Garcia, we’ll be in room B10!

Attached is the latest version of the meeting assignment sheet. You will
notice that our VP-Education has assigned TMOD and ME roles as well as
speeches out through mid-September. This will enable everyone to look at
their calendars and plan their roles/projects well in advance. Each eeting
has 4 speeches planned in case last minute changes take place. Please review your assignments and ensure that there are no conflicts with your long range plans. If you notice conflicts, please forward them to our VP-E, Jim Adams at and he will adjust the schedule.

Great Helmsmen say, “Yes!” VP, Education Jim Adams has arranged a
MEMBERSHIP DRIVE which will be held Friday, July 29, 6:30am-1pm. If you have half an hour or an hour that you can hand out flyers regarding our club, please email him. Membership building is everyone’s responsibility so if you can take a little time out of your day or lunch hour on July 29th, we will all benefit! By helping with the Membership Drive you can also get Club Leadership credit!

small evaluation in your leadership book.
