a. Sargent At Arms -- Opening the meeting and introducing the Toastmaster of the Day.
As part of our regularly scheduled meetings, members who are not performing roles in any given meeting, will be asked to open the meeting, performing one of the roles of the Sargent At Arms. This will give the individual practice at: being in the front of the room; developing your self confidence; & proper introductions.
b. Commercials -- 30 second commercial breaks
As part of our new agenda, beginning in April, 2 slots for 30 second commercial breaks will be incorporated, in an effort to give each member a chance to practice on their Elevator Pitch. Props can be used if needed, but the time is 30 seconds. Members can enroll for these slots.
We have a new Agenda format and are working on developing a website conducive to our mission.
As an added incentive, in May, we will incorporate a raffle to our club meetings. This will incentivize members to garner referral business by offering/donating a product or service for raffle. It will be a fundraising aspect of our club; it will generate further awareness of the business offered; the business won will be placed on our social sites for further advertisement.
