4.  Tip Corner
 
 
R-E-S-P-E-C-T —  That’s the Jeopardy answer to the question “what do Aretha Franklin and Toastmasters have in common?”  The TMoD will do his/her best to reach out to everyone via email or phone or text, but if you don’t have a role and want to participate,  then reach out to the TMoD and request a role.   Even if you are busy that week,  tell the TMoD, unfortunately you can’t make this week’s meeting.  That will help him/her plan and put the agenda together.
 
Also under the category of respect,  don’t forget to recognize guests and have them introduce themselves.  Treat them like family.  It’s sometimes difficult to see on Zoom in our  Brady Bunch/Hollywood Squares  (I’m showing my age) screens who has joined our meeting.  If you see a guest has joined and has not been recognized,  find a natural break in the course of the meeting to make sure he/she feels welcomed.

2.  Tip Corner
TMoD —  Plan for the meeting the best you can and then be flexible.  And can you and your team be flexible with you?  For instance,  a prepared speaker suddenly must attend a last-minute, no-warning business meeting.  This presents an opportunity for the table topics master to ask more table topics questions to fill in for not having that speech.  Or maybe, someone else has that hip-pocket speech ready to go and just needed that opportunity akin to an understudy getting that break to take over that starring role in that play.    Flexibility is key.
