The first meeting of the month is a regular meeting. The second meeting of the month is a ‘specialty meeting’. The specialty meetings mean we can do something special: meeting in other places, workshops, educational etc.
A Third meeting:
If a month consists out of five Thursdays, we hold a third meeting on the fifth Thursday.
Op elke bijeenkomst is het mogelijk om een Nederlandstalige toespraak te houden.
Making sure the meetings end on time:
We need to end on time as well. The Toastmaster of the Evening will make sure the table topics ends at 9.40 pm. The hark master only needs to ask about 5 questions concerning the speeches, no questions about evaluations.
Last-minute cancellations affect the quality and effectiveness of our meetings, and we would like to reduce last-minute cancellations to a minimum. Therefore, in the case that you would like to cancel your speech, we ask you to do so on the Sunday before the meeting at the latest and to search for a speaker who can replace you. Unfortunately, later cancellations may result in lowered priority for the assignment of your upcoming speech requests. In case of discussion, VP Education Officers have the final say.
Sponsorship for participating at the District Contest:
If a club member wins the Division contest, he or she can do a request to sponsor him or her for the District Contest. If the budget allows it, a sponsorship of 100 euro can be given. The club member may be asked to do something in favour to help the club or its members. The decision about the sponsorship will be taken by the President, the Treasurer and three other Officers. The decision will be taken by majority. No Officer can decide about their own request for sponsorship. He or she will be replaced by another Officer.
