“Every vote counts!”

The vote counter is the lubricant that keeps the wheels of a meeting running smoothly. It is an ideal starting role to gain initial stage experience. Feedback slips given by audience members to the speakers are extremely valuable. By ensuring that they receive them, you are doing a valuable role in helping the evening’s speakers develop and improve their skills!
DURING THE MEETING
Before the meeting starts you will be provided with a set of cups to collect votes and feedback slips. There will be one cup per speaker plus one for your own use!
You will be responsible for collecting votes at the following points:
After the timekeeper’s report for the prepared speeches – BEST SPEAKER
Following the timekeeper’s report on speech evaluator – BEST EVALUATOR
Once the timekeeper’s has reported on the table topics speakers times – BEST TABLE TOPIC
What if there is tie? Notify the club president as soon as practical to do so and he/she can make sure that all tied speakers or evaluators are awarded a ribbon!
