Meetings & Duty Roster


Our weekly meetings have three sections:

  1. Prepared speeches, where selected members give speeches that they have written and practiced ahead of time,
  2. Table topics, where members without other meeting duties are called upon to give a short impromptu speech on a question or topic, and
  3. 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.

To find out more detail about how a typical meeting goes and more specific descriptions of the duty holders, check out our Typical Meeting with Description of Duties page.

     "I believed getting more comfortable speaking in front of others would help me become more extroverted and confident. It has! I have a good solid feeling about being a member of this group. A good Toastmaster, by definition, is responsible and supportive. We have many good Toastmasters. Our club is a good place to experiment with one's own creativity: first to compose it, and second to talk about it in front of an audience." -- L.G.
