Here is an amazing submission for the role of Timer by TM Robert from Chicago. TM Robert compares two great US Institutions – NASA and Toastmasters to explain his role as a Timer. Read his submission below.
Toastmasters meetings are well thought out carefully planned events. Our agendas can rival NASA’s rocket launch programs. Just like them, events here occur in a sequenced and timely manner. As members, our duty is to make the mission successful by diligently following the time routine. Being the Timer today, I will keep you guided about your time limits.
For the prepared speeches, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 6 and red at the end of 7 minutes.
For the Table Topic Session, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At the end of 1 minute, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 1.5 and red at the end of 2 minutes.
For the Speech Evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At the end of 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 2.5 and red at the end of 3 minutes.
There is a grace time of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speeches.
I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
