It is the summer season and that you may be on the “Hot Seat” for last
minute changes. Things change often, so when you are ready to give your
speech, let the TM of the Day know even if you are not scheduled. We can
always fit you in! You can get credit for being Toastmaster of the Day,
Evaluator, and Table Topics Master, Timer, and many of the other duties.
During or immediately following the meeting, ask your fellow Toastmaster to
provide a small evaluation in your leadership book.

our Club achieves. If you go to Club Central and go to Distinguished Club
