My job as the Timer is to keep track of the time each table topic speaker, prepared speaker, and evaluator spends.
The timing starts with the first verbal or non-verbal form of communication with the audience.
Each table topic speaker is given two minutes. I will raise the green card when the speaker has spoken for one minute, the amber card at one minute and 30, and the red at two minutes. The speaker must wind up his or her remarks within 30 seconds after the red card, although it will remain displayed until the speech is concluded.
Any speaker who speaks for less than one minute or more than two minutes 30 is eligible for awards.
Each evaluator is given three minutes. The timing is two minute, two minute and 30, and three minutes. followed by the 30-seconds leeway after red.
Timing for each prepared speaker depends on his or her project. For today the first three speakers will speak for four to six minutes, and the fans will be raised at four, five, and six. The fourth speaker will speak for eight to ten minutes and the timing will be eight, nine, and ten followed by 30-seconds leeway.
(I also time one minute of silence between prepared speeches, for you to write feedback to prepared speakers.
I will report the result of timing at the end of each session.)
First speaker (Name) spoke for 1minute 30 (seconds）
Second speaker (Name) ...
My role as vote counter is to count the number of votes after each session to choose the best speaker of the session.
Please fill in your ballot and cast it in these boxes. I will tally the vote and pass the results to TMOD.
At the end of the meeting, TMOD announces the Best Table Topics Speaker, the Best Evaluator, and the Best Prepared Speaker. All speakers, please do your best.

Table Topics Master
* First state your table topics question, and then assign. This allows audience to get involved as they think they might be assigned.
* Create topics that are short and answerable.
* Whenever possible don't offer Table Topics participation to scheduled speakers so that they can concentrate on their roles
Here are tips to help your evaluation:
* Contact your assigned speaker prior to the meeting to know: the title, the project number and the objectives of the speaker's project. Evaluators often request the speech script in advance.
* Make your evaluation based on the objectives of the speech..
* Evaluations that is all praise is called a "white Wash. Try to find at least one suggestion for improvement no matter how good the speech is.
* Your evaluation is only your opinion. Avoid expressions that sound authoritative such as "you should have", "We thought" and "Why did you". More honest and suitable expressions are: "I think" and I felt".
* Ａlways remember to show respect to the speaker, and conclude your evaluation in a positive and upbeat tone. Give your evaluation in a manner that the speaker feels encouraged.
* Your evaluation is intended for the improvement of the speaker. Don't make it an opportunity to create your own speech , embarras the person or boast your knowledge.

Vote counter: handles ballots used at regular meetings. Only one name is written in this ballot used to choose the best table topics speaker, best evaluater and best prepared speaker respectively.
Tally counter: handles tally sheets used at contests. The first, second, and third best speakers are written in each sheet used by contest judges and the results are tallied. Therefore the sheet is called a tally sheet, and not a ballot, and the role is called the Tally counter.
