Welcome to this Historic Meeting for Outspoken Toastmasters!

Greg Fuchs led Table Topics: Everyone spoke for Table Topics except Aimee and Lois. We did not vote today, but will begin voting again next week.

Lois provided feedback for Aimee.

Today’s meeting went well for our first Hybrid meeting. We will be making changes to next week so that hopefully we can cast the On-Line attendees to the big TV and hear them better as well.

We will be adding 2 new roles to our agenda and need people to sign up for those roles as well as our usual ones:
Timer will be split into 2 roles: On-Site and On-Line
Zoom Master will monitor the Zoom Room and Chat Window

Stay tuned for more as we continue to learn and tweak the hybrid experience to make it effective for everyone.
