Typical Meeting Schedule

Start- 7:00 AM
Our president will begin the meeting, and ask if there were any outside speeches. From there we go over any business we need to take care of, and the president will turn the lecture over to the Toastmaster of the day.

The Toastmaster will introduce the rolls of the day: grammarian, table topicsmaster, timer, general evaluator, and speech evaluator. They will then announce the day's speakers, with a short introduction.

Both speaker will give their speech at the lectern, and will be evaluated by a speech evaluator to find out what was good, and what needs improvement in their speech.

Toastmaster of the day will come back up to the front and remind everyone to fill out our evaluation sheets and then pass them to the speaker.

Table topics is when the topics master will ask random members a to speak on a topic such as "Please make a commercial about shoes" or "Tell us story about when you have been on vacation, and a problem arose".

To end the meeting, each roll will review what they were looking for that day. Grammarian will report on umms and interesting words. Table topics will present the award to the best impromptu one minute speech. Timer will state how long everyone spoke for, especially the speaker and speech evaluators. Lastly, the general evaluator will say how everyone who wasn't evaluated did, such as how timely the Toastmaster was, and how transitions between rolls were.

The president will then take over to give the schedule for next week, and conclude the meeting.
End- 7:50 AM

Meet of Vice President of Membership- Jalene

Hello Fellow Toastmasters!

I'm Jalene Case. I live in Newport with my husband of 10 years, and enjoy frequent visits from my 28-year old son living in Portland. Personally, I love to sail, kayak, motorcycle, walk/hike, and do yoga.

Professionally, I’m the CEO and President of Jalene Case Coaching & Professional Development. I help people create lives they love! Personally, I work with individuals to connect with their hearts’ voice and then, take purposeful action toward what matters most to them. Professnally, I work with teams to increase their cohesiveness, productivity, and satisfaction. I’m a professional facilitator, coach, and speaker. Plus, I’ve traveled the world by motorcycle for 2 years and co-authored “52 Ways to Connect with You.”

I joined Toastmasters in January 2018 because I wanted to strengthen my voice from the inside out. My dream is to be clearer about what I want to say and better at saying it. My favorite things about our Toastmasters group are: the camaraderie, support, and laughter, the weekly learning about public speaking, and the challenge of giving presentations. I became the Membership Officer because I want aspiring Toastmasters to feel welcome and get started on the right foot. In the next year, my goal is to design an orientation process that’s easy for anyone in our club to share with people considering or joining our group.

Warm regards,
