CLHにもfast-paced meetingを目指そうという表現がありますが、まさに昨日はそうなりました。TMoEがしっかり準備をしてくれたおかげです。また、スピーチも全てレベルが高く、ゲストに対する気配りも行き届いており、素晴らしいスタートとなったと思います。

心なしか、例会中に使われている語彙のレベルが高かったように感じました。ビジョンとして、Leverage Collective Strengthというのをあげましたが、クラブ全体ではかなり高い語彙力があると思うので、他のメンバーの使っている単語から学ぶということもできるかもしれません。とはいえ、知らない単語は聞き取れないので、ここに私が聞き取れたものだけ挙げておきます。

encompass, emphasize, conscious, impact, demolish, epitomize, cutting-edge, regardless, anxiety, genuine, groove, feasibility study

Yesterday we had our very first meeting under the new LT. I am still not used to the cadence of meetings in my new capacity so you may have seen some awkward moments. But thanks to your support I managed to get it over with.

The Club Leadership Handbook says that we should aim to have a faced-paced meeting, and we were able to do just that last night. We owe this success to the thorough preparation by TMoE. All speeches were excellent and the guests were well looked after. We had a very good start.

Somehow I felt that the vocabulary used during the course of the meeting was more sophisticated than usual. The vision includes 'leverage collective strength' and our vocabulary is quite rich as a whole club. We can learn from words and expressions used by other members. Having said that, we can only hear words that we know so I have listed the ones I liked.
