Sandy Springs Toastmasters January 16, 2020 Meeting Recap & January 23 Roles


Jim Owen served as Sergeant at Arms since Bud Otto was not present. Vice President of Education, Andy Kallenberg began the meeting. Andy updated the group on several key topics: makeup sessions for Officer training, how we can achieve Distinguished Club Program (DCP) status, and upcoming competitions. 

Our Area Director visited us and also shared information about upcoming contests. The International Speech contests begin at the end of February. You must have achieved Level 2 in Pathways to participate. Member, Jimmy Sidol is interested in representing us in this contest and worked with Andy after the meeting to ensure he is on track.

Members can review more detail on the Toastmasters International website https://www.toastmasters.org/ and specific news about leadership training and the event calendar on our District website: http://www.d44toastmasters.org/.

By the way, if you ever wanted to know, our Club number is 3133. We are District 44 and Area C36.

Also in attendance was one of our Past Presidents, Alan Magee, who served two years in the role. Alan recommitted to regular attendance to Toastmasters despite his hectic work and travel schedule.

Andy also served as Toastmaster and reviewed the roles for the day. Table Topics Master, Jim Owen, provided the group with questions from a book he was reading about “refiring” your life, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. Heartfelt answers were heard from every member. Questions included, What can you do to let others know you care about them?, What will you do to get out of your comfort zone? and Tell us about a set back and how you dealt with it? Steve Bragg won for Best Table Topic response.
