Sandy Springs Toastmasters April 11, 2019 Meeting Recap & April 18 Role Assignments


Parking at Campbell-Stone: It is ok to park in both Resident AND Visitor parking but NOT spaces marked RESERVED! We are officially seeking a new location for our club meetings!

The month of June is officer election month with a formal change over July 1. Be thinking about filling an officer role!

April 11, 2019 Meeting Recap and Role Assignments for April 18
Sergeant-at-arms, Bud Otto called the meeting to order at 7:00 AM. We had a great crowd: twelve stellar members were in attendance.

Bud also served as Toastmaster of the Day and assigned all the remaining roles.

Members Wright Paulk and Stacia Pass both provided jokes for the day. Stasia’s joke about a professional procrastinator putting off their decision until tomorrow surely resonated with all of us in getting our speeches prepared and delivered!

Una Richards, our Vice President of Education, was also Table Topics Master for the day. Una provide a great variety of thought provoking questions that she found online, such as: Would you break the law to save a loved one? What does the American Dream mean to you? Is it worse to fail or never try?  Stasia won with her response to the question: What is more important to go to war for? Her answer: freedom. 

After the break, we heard from two speakers, Colbi Ellison, long-time member, and Andy Kallenberg, one of our newest members. 

Colbi’s speech, Colbis Rant was about how to stretch and expand your skills to reach your personal goals. Colbi strongly advocated expanding your communication skills in a variety of ways, in particular recording yourself and doing a podcast such as one he gave recently. 

Andy gave an impromptu speech (way to go Andy!) about effective communication skills learned and used when he embarked on becoming an AirBNB provider. 
Una reviewed the roles for next week.
