2nd general meeting (18/03/12) of THE 1ST MALAYSIAN GAVEL CLUB !

Hi and welcome back fellow Gaveliers (it's a made-up word of course!), Yes today is the 18th of March and also our 2nd general meeting of year 2012! It is I, Guan Ren, who will be your gavel-blogger for today (yeap I made up that word too), so bear with me and read on!

Today went smoothly despite the lacking amount of people, can't blame it on anyone because it is after all, still a holiday for most of us! So I shall grant you absentees a chance to redeem yourself and attend our next general meeting which is on the 25th of March! 2.15pm - 4.15pm , Subang Jaya Buddhist Association, 1st floor AV room (located next to the meeting room)!  So clear up your schedule and come over for an enlightening experience to enrich your communication and public speaking skills!

Now to the details of the general meeting of today, we introduced a new role-- the Time Keeper! As the title suggests, this role-player (can be taken up by the table topics evaluator too) will keep track of the time of the speech of each speakers to ensure speakers reach the minimum amount of time for the speech and also don't exceed the time limit, this benefits the speaker in such a way that with practice, he/she can organize the speech better in their head and gracefully deliver it!

Moving on , our president, Xin Vee did a project speech in today's meeting! Project speech is actually a prepared speech that may vary from 4-7 minutes depending of the topic and objectives. This project speech will be delivered from seasoned members that received the manual (Competent Communication) that is shipped from the U.S, the Toastmasters International. (for more information, please visit )

To become a member, you'll have to pay RM100 per year for the first time to be our very Gavel club member and RM90 for the following years. Yes when you become a member, you will receive the Competent Communication manual as mentioned previously. 

Back to topic, details of the meeting! We had a total of 7 table topic speakers today and the speeches delivered were interesting and yet awe-inspiring and the word of the day was 'Awesome'. A common word used by people nowadays and I believe all of you readers already know it! As I mentioned earlier, Xin Vee delivered her project speech which is 'Flatulence 101' that was evaluated by our counselor, Bro.Chuan. What is flatulence you ask?! I was scratching my head when the title was invoked, if you are doing the same too, well, go search it up!

Kudos to Ms.president and special thanks to TOTD, Jason Teh!

Overall the speeches delivered today were smooth and informative at the same time, and our heroine, Xin Vee also did a table topic speech by the way, got the 'Best Speaker' of the session! Truly awesome! Opps looks like I talked/wrote too much already, I guess that's all for today, Gaveliers! I really hope to see more new faces (actually old faces will do too) in the next meeting! See you then!
