Club Meeting on 8th May 2018 – Elections

The theme for tonight’s meeting was “Elections”, because we were holding an election of the new club executive for 2018/19. The election was a success, and the new executive below will takeover from 1st July 2018.

President – Christopher Tso
VP of Education – Hannah Le
VP of Membership – Johnny Manolelis
VP of Public Relations – Rowlanda Orchiston
Secretary – Mark Paton
Treasurer – Jason Xu
Sergeant at Arms – Vicky Mina
Immediate Past President – Mark Paton

We had 5 visitors, 2 from Parramatta Toastmasters who helped us run the elections, and the other 3 were potential members.

Hannah put us on the spot with Table Topics, with each speaker trying to explain themselves out of a political scandal.

For the speeches, we had Mark facilitating a debate on the topic “when should children move out”, Johnny teaching us 6 principles on how to sell, and Jason revealing an often neglected truth about Australia’s history.

For the Word of the Night, Chris chose the word “Discord”. As well as the dictionary definitions, a Google search reveals it’s also a social networking and chat platform.

Thanks everyone for keeping the club so positive and enriching. We’re looking forward to an even better year in 2018/19.
