Timer

Taking on this role improves time management skills

One of the skills Toastmasters practice is expressing a thought within a specific time. As Timer you are responsible for monitoring time for each meeting segment and each speaker. To perform as Timer, you:

  • Acquire the timing/signaling equipment from the Sergeant-at-Arms and know how to operate it.
  • Explain the timing rules and demonstrate the signal device if called upon to do so.
  • Throughout the meeting, listen carefully to each participant and signal them accordingly.
  • When called to report, announce the speaker’s name and the time taken.
  • After the meeting, return the timing/signaling equipment to the Sergeant-at-Arms and give your timer’s report to the secretary.
