New Business:

Please pay your Toastmasters dues if you have not already done so.

Today we inducted our newest member Roman Vilensky. Great to have you back in the club!

For the next meetings please go and visit easy-speak for selecting for a role and/or speaking slot.

Old Business:  


Regarding missing more than 3 meetings in a row, a work related absence is excused if the member provides notice and finds a replacement for their role.

Club specifics: Currently the club is at the maximum number of members which is 35.  If a member misses more than 3 meetings in a row that is not related to travel, illness, or business that member will moved to the inactive list. If a member is unable to attend a meeting it is the member’s responsibility to find a replacement. Remember to fill your role if you are unable to attend.Once the inactive member returns to meetings the member will be admitted before the guests if there is a waitlist at that time.

It is important to keep our introductions, invocation, toast, educational minute and joke, short.
