New Business:
Discuss 4-Speaker Meeting Format: Laurie Anderson proposes potentially moving to a 3-Speaker meeting format and ending the meeting 10 minutes early while meeting attendance is low. Club agrees to keep 4-Speaker meeting format and adjust to a 3-Speaker format as needed. Additional time to be made up during Table Topics. Note: Additional preparation and coordination required of the Table Topics Master to let the Timer know how much time to allocate to Table Topics based on the number of attendees eligible to participate in the Table Topics portion of the meeting.
Guest Feedback: Guests April and Michelle share their feedback from the meeting.
Meeting Roles: Read and confirm meeting roles for next meeting.
VI.
Old Business:
It is important to keep our introductions, invocation, toast, educational minute and joke, short.
Club Specific: If a member misses more than 3 meetings in a row that is not related to travel, illness, or business that member will be moved to the inactive list. Once the inactive member returns to meetings the member will be admitted before the guests if there is a waitlist at that time.
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.
