RITM Meeting May 8, 2006
Greetings Roosevelt Island Toastmasters,
The meeting of May 8, 2006 was called to order by Doris Chernik, our Vice President Education, with Simi Rokolaqa as Toastmaster for the evening. Don Guan was Word Master and challenged us to use the word circumvent in our presentations. Barry Wan served as Table Topics Master, and Malcoln Cohen was the General Evaluator. I (Woody) was the first speaker, and I presented Project #6 (Vocal Variety) with the title, "Marketing Wants People to Remember," which was evaluated by Sue Brown. Marlene presented Speech #2 from the Advanced Storytelling Series. She was evaluated by Janet Schone. Jill spoke from the Advanced Storytelling Series too, presenting Speech #4 (A Touching Story). She was evaluated by Jim, who took Best Evaluator honors, while Jill herself was voted Best Speaker. Doris presented "Evaluate to Motivate" from the Successful Club Series, and Malcolm followed her instructive presentation with a really great evaluation of the evaluators. Jill's speech was reflective of her always excellent presentation skills - she certainly accomplished the objectives of the project. Simi did an excellent job as Toastmaster, which Malcolm commented on, and Barry led one of the most comprehensive Table Topics sessions I've witnessed - nine speakers participated. We had one guest, who introduced himself and spoke briefly, and Doris announced assignments for the next meeting before Jim adjourned the meeting shortly before 10:00 P.M..
