A Meeting in Action

Ever wondered what a Downtown Toastmasters meeting looks like? Here we are between 7:15 am – 8:30 am seated horseshoe style so that all can participate. The WHITE circle shows our Toastmaster of the day.  At this point in our meeting, we are conducting Table Topics, a chance to practice short impromptu responses to a surprise question or prompt. The BLUE circles point out the Table Topics Master who is asking for a response from the Table Topics Speaker. Our Vote Counter and Grammarian are shown in YELLOW. Our videographer is in RED. Our Timer is shown inside the GREEN. All the rest of us are listening and writing suggestions or marking our votes. These roles change every week. It’s all very interesting and engaging, and always full of surprises.
