We had a small meeting on May 16. Attendees were Heather, Julie, Anna Lisa, Saurabh, Sapna, and Jasmine.
Julie was the Toastmaster and had a theme of Cards Against Humanity. It was a funny and sometimes coarse card game that she played with her mother over the weekend.
Jule was also the speaker at this meeting. She discussed benefits of Club Leadership and the different roles of leadership you can take in Toastmasters to be more involved in your club. Below is an outline of the roles and click here to learn about the transferable skills you can learn.
