Two raps from the President’s gavel sent the audience shuffling to their seats. President, Taite Johnson announced,
"The meeting room will come to order." A respective hush falls in the room. President Johnson continues,
"Will the Secretary please read the minutes from the last meeting?" Secretary, Aleesha Gladson, assertively
stood and began reading, as Treasurer, Brandon Winterholler, and Committee Chair, Ezra Coleman, looked on.
Razor City Toastmasters Club #6397 joined with the Gillette FFA Chapter to host a one of a kind Parliamentary Procedure
Workshop on October 28th, 2010 in Gillette, Wyoming. Karen Trigg, high school agricultural education teacher and FFA
Parli-Pro Coach was the speaker and educator for the workshop.
The workshop started with the high school FFA students presenting a mock meeting. Mrs. Trigg then followed up with
discussion among attendees about the frustrations they experience at meetings they are involved in. The discussion set the
ground work as the workshop proceeded to give the audience tools to improve the efficiency and productivity of a meeting.
