An educational meeting consists of four basic parts:
Round Robin session: As a warm-up session to the upcoming sessions, all members are encouraged to speak for approximately 20 seconds on a topic selected by the Toastmaster.
Table Topics: In this segment, members not otherwise scheduled as program participants have an opportunity to present one to two-minute impromptu talks.
Prepared speeches: During this portion of the meeting, several members present speeches based on projects in the Competent Communication and Advanced Communication manuals.
Evaluations: Each prepared/ impromptu speech and leadership role is verbally evaluated by a fellow member in a helpful, constructive manner using given evaluation criteria. In addition, the evaluators provide written evaluations for the Competent Leadership and Competent Communication manuals upon request.
