Think Tank Toastmasters has the best discussion meetings in all of District 3.TTT Officers

Once a month, Toastmasters from several counties gather together At the Phoenix Hilton on Saturday night for a meal and a very distinguished ToastMaster meeting. Most clubs meet weekly, however Think Tank Toastmasters is an advanced club working to increase the quality of Toastmasters experience throughout all of District 3. Its members, Distinguished Toastmasters all, also belong to other clubs. Think Tank is a specialty club dedicated to making the Toastmasters experience more satisfying and enriching throughout Arizona.

Accordingly, the Think Tank agenda differs from other Toastmasters clubs. A typical meeting will include a social hour, including dinner, two prepared speeches, two discussions by the whole club, and then evaluations. The club frequently votes to support a member proposal, perhaps study a problem for solutions, and take action TTT Members with Santawithin District 3. Sometimes proposals are submitted to the District trio. Other times a district leader comes to Think Tank with a request for assistance. In the past Think Tank has helped fall and spring conferences with a special project; the club often discusses how to build membership in Toastmasters clubs throughout Arizona.

Unlike most Toastmasters clubs, Think Tank does not hold table topics, although the club will select a representative to participate in the District 3 Table Topics contest this spring. Instead, the club specializes in holding discussion manual speeches so that all members can participate in open discussion every meeting. The club has developed its own rules of protocol for handling open discussion; sometimes two timers are needed at the meeting to support the discussion process. In addition, the club sometimes holds “fun” speeches, and contests are a regular part of the program agenda.
