November 2 Sandy Springs TM Meeting Recap:

Hello fellow Sandy Springs Toastmasters and guests! 

It was a pleasure seeing everyone today. Here is an announcement to be aware of:

Pathways is coming! May 2018!! Here are a few links to begin to get you acclimated to the new process, please be sure you have a user name and password for toastmasters.org as this will be needed for Pathways. 


Achievements of the today's meeting:

David Kulze led us in a spooky round of table topics centered around Halloween. Guest Barry Anderson and Steve Bragg tied for best table topics. In lieu of speeches today, Melinda Schmitt led us in a game of 2 truths and a lie where everyone had an opportunity to share 2 truths and one lie about themselves and the rest of the members had to guess which was the lie. It was a great way to get to know each other a little better! Andrea Miranda brought out the bell to let us know in the moment when we were using our um's and so's. She did a fantastic job explaining additional filler words she heard us using (kinda like, you know, like you know) and cautioned us to be aware of them in the future. 

Tips and tools for improvement:

Anastasia Pass reminded us that we can all focus on becoming more communicative with our roles. This means being sure to review what/if you have a role coming up (look ahead to upcoming weeks here) and confirm the week before if you will be able to fill your role. This is a great time to review which roles we need to reach our Competent Leader Award or how many speeches we need before reaching our Competent Communicator Award. Remember to bring in your books to be signed! 

The Ignite Fall Conference is coming up in just a few short weeks. There is still some time left to purchase tickets to this informative and fun event. If you are ready to kick your speaking skills into high gear, you won't want to miss this. It will be held on 11/17-11/18 at the Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta, 5750 Windward Parkway, Alpharetta. If you just want to go to see Paige Kerr kick some butt during her humorous speech contest, you can purchase tickets for $30here.

Everyone have a great weekend and we will see you next Thursday!
