Officers’ Reports (VP Ed, VP Membership, VP PR, Treasurer, Sgt-at-Arms, Officer at Large)
Club Treasurer, Joe Archambault, has received some checks to cover dues and will continue to give reminders. He would like to have all updates by the last Monday of this month
Barb Sapienza, VP of Education, encouraged the members to complete their Competent Leadership manual. She explained that the assignments for this award are tasks done during the meetings so members should bring their competent leadership manuals to the meetings so that another member can evaluate their performance on these assignments. She will be presenting information on the Competent Leadership manual at a special mentoring workshop next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. before the regular meeting and invites anyone who is interested to attend. Another reason to earn the Competent Leadership award is that our Club receives points to maintain our status as a President’s Distinguished Club.
Howard Brandt is distributing the flyer/sign up, for our anniversary dinner. So far 9 people have signed up. You can bring as many guests as you like. Howard needs the money in by Oct. 13th, the week before the event.
Max Kaiser Jr. informs us that Webster Univ. is looking for judges at their speech contest. They give a $10 honorarium and welcome Toastmasters to preside.
Kathy Denton reports that our DVD/Camcorder has been repaired and returned to the club. It uses DVD-RW mini discs as before. You can bring your own or purchase one from the camera operator on the night of your speech for $2.
Treasurer, Joe Archambault submitted a receipt of $48.00 for trophies from the Speech and Table Topics Contest. A motion was made by Max Kaiser Jr. for reimbursement motion was seconded by Alan Kirby. Bill Collier of Arch Engraving has offered to donate the trophies to the club. We gratefully accept.
