When Daybreak Santa Clarita meets, it is for one hour only on a workday. All the members know they need to be laconic so that we have time for everything. Our General Evaluator, Marcia Bruce Bush, Distinguished Toastmaster, gave us an overview of that task at the last meeting. It is not just speaking less, it is speaking more succinctly.
Laconic was the word of the day, hand picked by Grammarian of the meeting, Don Cogan, Distinguished Toastmaster.
The fourteen members and guest in the room were encouraged to use the word of the day each time they spoke as a participant at the meeting.
