Our weekly meetings have three sections:
- Prepared speeches, where selected members give speeches that they have written and practiced ahead of time,
- Table topics, where members without other meeting duties are called upon to give a short impromptu speech on a question or topic, and
- Evaluation, where evaluators constructively and positively review the speech of the prepared speakers and a general meeting evaluator reviews the success of that night's meeting.
At Addison Singles Toastmasters, we have theme meetings each week. Some of the themes in the past have been Halloween, Jimmy Buffet, Cool Web Sites, Fossils, Puzzles, the Circus, and many more. On rare occasions, there are chances to dress in costumes, which is always optional.
