What do the Officers do?

They have general administrative roles and particular responsibilities.

Club Administration

A quick summary is that they handle the club’s administration and make decisions for the benefit of the club.  Most of our members have joined to learn and to practice their public speaking skills.  Our officers meet for a business session every two to three months.  Their decisions are reported to the club by the President.  For example, the outgoing Officer group considered the club’s financial situation.  At their meeting in May, they decided that from July 1 member six monthly fees would be increased from $100 to $120.  This is to meet rising costs from our venue and from Toastmasters International.  Members will be paying this fee in September to renew their membership for the following six months.

Specific Officer Roles

  • President – Close each meeting after welcoming comments from visitors and handling announcements.
  • Vice President Education – Prepare and print Agendas for our weekly meetings
  • Vice President Membership – Welcome visitors, hand them our new member material and handle their applications to join
  • Vice President Public Relations – Submit stories to be published on our webpage (like this story) and assist with preparing and publishing the Club’s Newsletter, Quaywords

A new Club Role

Supper Coordinator

The supper at the end of our meetings is a very important part of our Club culture.  It is one of the key reasons that we have been able to maintain our position as one of only 40 outstanding clubs in the 16,000 around the world.

We have decided it is so important that we will have a special Officer role.  Annika Sugden has agreed to take on the role.

If you have any enquiries about this new role, or any other matter relating to the club or your membership, you can speak to any of our Officers and contact
