Our Rotary Club Meeting Assistance Committee helps our weekly luncheons run smoothly by helping with table handouts and with the speaker Q&A section of the meetings.
The Wednesday, November 7 Rotary meeting was a perfect example of the Meeting Assistance committee clicking on all cylinders. Table tents and handouts were on every table. When President Wes referred to information on them, members had easy access to the materials. After the speaker concluded his presentation, the two members on microphone duty spread out across the room and sprang into action, seamlessly gliding around the room fielding questions. Nonverbal communication and eye contact connections were key; enabling alternating members to ask their questions at the conclusion of the speakers response to the previous question. It was probably one of the best coordinated question/answer segments. Included with this article are several illustrations of our Club Meeting Assistance Committee members in action.
When all details are considered and handled this well, it looks effortless! Thanks for the excellent meeting choreography!
