Parliamentarian Contest 2024

Miranda Toastmasters’ meeting on Tuesday 28 May, featuring the Club’s Parliamentarian Contest, was a night of fine entertainment and stimulating debate, as four club members competed to give the best Evaluation of the Chairman’s performance conducting the business section of the meeting. Chairman for the night was Club President Jill, who did a sterling job managing some complex discussions.
The four contestants were: Richard M., Paul S., John P. and Teresa O. (see photo below, left) And the winners were John, first place, and Teresa runner-up.
Miranda Toastmasters Club is probably unique in conducting a Parliamentarian Contest, which is named the ‘Barham. F Tooth Parliamentarian Contest’ in memory of Barry Tooth, a former member of the Club. Barry was a stickler for correct meeting procedures and through Barry’s knowledge of the Westminster meeting procedures, and his tuition, many members have become proficient with the assignment of Chairman.
Several guests attended the meeting including first-timer Marc who won the Table Topics award for the night (very impressive!).
