Toastmaster of the Day Lukas Calafell, IP5, SR2
Introduces supporting roles. Leads the meeting.
Timer Elizanne Warren-Russell, LD3
The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect. For an audible cue, tapping a pencil or a knife against a glass produces a chime that is not too distracting.
