7:40 PM Presiding Officer gives a brief orientation and overview of the club mission. Introduces the Toastmaster of the Day
Emily Thompson is a member of Online Presenters and President of Washtenaw Toastmasters, her local Club. She is a professor at a community college and she joined Online Presenters in January of this year because she believes the future of education is online. When the pandemic shut down the club meeting space and the residents of her state were ordered to sequester at home, Emily and the other officers of Washtenaw Toastmasters took the club online. Emily claims that the most important thing she learned in her Lessons Learned meeting was to advertise the meeting will last 15 minutes and there will be a party afterwards!
