    -Be mindful of the words with special meaning or uncommon words. Make sure to give a proper definition of them or provide proper explanation.
    -Invite speakers to come speak in front.
    -When using a set of pre-made question cards, it is recommended to select them before the meeting instead of picking them at random during the meeting.

    Meeting Minutes - Part 2 (Thanks to Madeline)

    - Claudette gave her 8th speech on 'Rules, Tools, and You - Attitude Counts. Her objectives as explained by Bina, was to use visual cues and honed on the skills she gained from previous speech projects. Her motivational speech demystify and armed us with the right attitude in meeting the challenge of Toastmaster Speech Contest. Basically, everyone can meet the challenge. If you can speak, if you can read time, if you can listing to a speaker, if you can ... then you can be a contestant.
    - Bina evaluated Claudette speech and provided useful feedbacks that we can all apply. Claudette used a very clear and complete visual aids in the form of handouts. Colors in handout helped separate content and would make highlights stand out. When needed, it helps to provide a definition of key words or theme to start everyone on the same feet.
