What goes on at each meeting? 

There are three basic parts to the meeting: the prepared speeches, Table Topics, and evaluations.  In the prepared speaking portion of the meeting, two, three, or sometimes four speakers will give a prepared presentation or speech before the group. "Table Topics" is an extemporaneous speaking exercise where the speaker speaks "off the cuff"; that is, the speaker responds to a question or topic that is not known beforehand. The Table Topics Master presents the topic, calls on an individual, and then that individual has 1 to 2 minutes to respond.  The evaluation session is where feedback is provided to all members, including the speakers. Evaluator give a 2- to 3-minute evaluation of an earlier presentation.
