Meeting Facilitation: All portions of the weekly meetings are run by the Toastmaster, including requesting reports at the end of the meeting. (This differs from a standard meeting wherein the Toastmaster turns over control to the General Evaluator for the evaluation portion.)
Quiet on the Set: To ensure orderliness, all members should keep themselves muted, except when called upon by the Toastmaster. You can mute and unmute yourself by clicking on the icon at the bottom center of the screen. The Toastmaster reserves the right to mute users as needed.
Members who wish to give a speech are required to have a webcam. Webcams are optional for all other users, including those delivering table topics. Severalaffordableweb cameras are available through Amazon.
It is acceptable to deliver a table topic speech while seated. Similarly, speeches may also be given while seated, especially for any demonstration or presentation-style speeches.
Use of Text Chat: Text-based chat should be limited to the Toastmasters topic at hand. Please do not use chat to discuss topics outside of the meeting's subject.
Voting: We are not currently voting for Best Speaker, Best Evaluator, or Best Table Topic Speaker.
