第666回例会レポート“Discovery Through Travel” #666 TMOD Meeting Report

Pocket

第666回の例会は、ゴールデンウィークの後半に開かれました。 テーマは「旅先での発見」です。多くの会員からコメントをいただき、例会中に一つひとつすべてを紹介したいと思うものでした。例会中にはキーワードのみご紹介しました。 テーブルトピックセッションで尋ねられた質問は、どれも話し手にぴったりのもので、それぞれ個人的なエピソードを聞くことができました。 準備スピーチでは、二人のスピーカーがPathwaysに挑戦し、アイスブレーカースピーチを披露しました。 例会の後半には、Oさんによる大きな場面でのスピーチを聞くことができました。貴重な機会をいただき嬉しいです。 この例会も、思い出に残るものになりました。 TMOD: K Hello members and guests. The last meeting #666 was held in the latter half of Golden Week holidays, but many members and guests joined it. The meeting theme was “Discovery Through Travel.” Members had given me a variety of comments about it and although I wanted to share all of them with other members, I only introduced keywords of them at the meeting. Questions asked in Table Topics Session fit each speaker and all of them could show their own episodes. In this meeting, two speakers tried the Ice Breaker speeches based on our new education system, Pathways. They were well prepared and the audience enjoyed them. After the meeting adjourned, we had an opportunity to hear a rehearsal speech made by TM O, who was going to participate in the Toastmasters International District 76 Spring Speech Contest. It was great and I was happy to be given such a precious opportunity to listen to it before the big contest. I believe this meeting was a memorable one. Thank you, TMOD: K

23_TMODandWinnersGreetings all,

The 607th meeting was held on November 7th, 2015.
2 guests joined us and we had a lively meeting.


The word of the day was “mitigate”.
And table topic session was about “Santa Claus”.
4 questions were all unique and enjoyable.
So we could “mitigate” our nervousness and relax!


About 3 prepared speeches, all speakers were women!
And the speeches had plenty of variety.

TM M.N. – Her 1st speech (Icebreaker)
TM W.Y. – Speech about “Leadership”
TM H.A. – Interpretive Reading

Especially, TM M.N. made the 1st speech as a new member of YTMC.
She introduced herself by a unique method, and got the prize “Best Speaker”.
Congratulations!

There was the special workshop about Division E Contest that was hosted by YTMC last month.
We could get impressions and opinions about the contest from both a contestant and committee members.
And it was useful for us to learn the importance of Toastmaster’s activities outside YTMC.

As TMOD, I realized that the meeting was made up of much support from the members.
And I’m very grateful to all the role takers, members, and the guests.

Next regular meeting will be held on Nov. 21st at Hatoba Kaikan.
See you at the next meeting!

The 597th Meeting Report

On June 6th we had our 597th regular meeting. We had many attendants, including 2 guests from other Toastmasters Clubs. The schedule was rather tight, but we could finish it successfully, almost on time. As it was the first meeting in June, theme of the meeting was “ Rainy season is coming”. In Table Topic Session, TM Y.T gave us questions related to the meeting theme, as she talks along the story. It was certainly a fresh way of conducting the session. In educational session, we had 3 speakers. TM W.Y‘s speech “Struggle with R and L” was about how she tried to overcome her difficulty in pronunciation. TM Y.H tried his ice breaking speech, “My Nicknames”. From TM A.I’s speech “Hubble’s Apprentice”, we learned interesting yet not so common story. We also had TM H.A’s workshop “Enjoy working with Your Team!”. Through the workshop we found out that each of us belong to several kinds of teams, and learned many tips how we could get along well with other team members. It was my first time to take the TMOD role, but I could manage to wrap up the meeting without any issue. I would like to thank all attendants for their cooperation.

The 596th Meeting Report

Pocket

The 596th meeting was held on May 23, 2015. This meeting is characterized by three features: Officers’ election, a report on District 76 contest and an invitation of a guest speaker. The election is one of important annual event of our club, a kind of a ritual. After the ritual, I activated a regular meeting as a master of the meeting. In a warming up session, we had four table topic speakers who made a two-minute speech as well as a contest report on District 76 contest, whose champion will represent the district 76 for the international contest at Las Vegas in this summer. The reporter seemed to enjoy sophisticated speeches as well as a drinking party after the contest. Then, we had two 7-minute speeches and two 3-minute evaluation for the speakers. One of speeches was presented by a guest speaker from Nihonbashi century toastmasters club. He brought a fresh air to our club by his own speech style and his own point of view, which are slightly different from our club members, I think. Honestly speaking I had no enough time to prepare for this meeting. But thank for member’s cooperation, I could successfully handle it. Thank you for all attendances especially the guest speaker, a mediator of a guest speaker, the election chair, and a member from Nagoya!

The 592nd Meeting Report

Pocket

The YTMC meeting # 592 was held on 21st March. Though it is the holiday - Spring Equinox Day -, there were not so many attendants. Luckily we had three guests. The meeting was so energetic to cover some absentees. Especially, some of officers took double and triple roles. As TMOD, I was really touched by their efforts and supports. Another moment I impressed a lot was TM T. S’s workshop. Following the TM T. N’s workshop at the previous meeting to introduce his role as Treasurer and bring up an issue of the fund of YTMC, TM T. S delivered his speech related his role as VP Public Relations. During his workshop, we are divided into two groups and discussed how to recruit our new members. The discussion was heated up and even guests positively gave comments. It is nice to know what our officers are doing for us. The meeting was wrapped up on time. It was successful Thank you, all participants for your active commitments If I give one comment, I hope to see as many members as possible at the next time! TMOD, H. I   image image image image image

The 593rd Meeting Report

Pocket

With Sakura in full bloom, we were delighted with the turnout of members for our YTMC Meeting #593. Although we had to scramble a little before the meeting to fill all the roles, we could enjoy the meeting and speeches. Much appreciation has to be given to Toastmaster E.Y, T.M, and R.K for their great effort in taking double roles. As for the meeting itself, we started off with the Word of the Day “outsmart” which we found difficult to use but all of us learned how to outsmart our way through the Advanced Manuals thanks to the long prepared speech that Toastmaster Y.K gave on his Toastmasters activities. We also laughed our way through Toastmaster K.T’s speech about her husband “What does he do?” and our Speech of the Day award went to Toastmaster A,I. for his interesting speech “Joyful and Disastrous Trip” After a short break, we continued with Table Topics. Toastmaster N.F. chose some veteran and older members to reminisce about their school graduation and favorite Sakura spots. My mentor Toastmaster A.I showed his prowess again by outsmarting the other speakers and taking home the best Table Topics speaker award. Our 4 guests with 3 of them 1st time visitors could benefit from Toastmaster T.K.’s 16 minute presentation about his Toastmastering activities and we hope they will be back to experience meetings in the future. Thanks to all for participating and looking forward to see you at our upcoming meetings! Toastmaster M.F image
