The duty of the Quizmaster is to round out the evaluation portion of the meeting in an upbeat way, testing the audience’s listening skills.  It is a question-and-answer period, highlighting interesting information learned throughout the meeting. You lead by exemplifying your own active listening.

During the Meeting

As the meeting progresses, jot down simple questions based on what was said or done during the speeches and Table Topics.  Aim for five or six questions.  

Your Report

When called on by the General Evaluator, you have three minutes to give your report. Stand at your chair, and if your role has not already been explained take 15 seconds to provide a quick overview.

Begin by asking your first question.  Allow for 5-to-10 seconds for answers.  Expect rapid answers to be called out from the audience. If no response is given to a question, provide the answer and move onto the next question. 

When your time is up, thank the audience for their participation and pass control back to the General Evaluator before being seated.
