Role of the Joke Master


The Jokemaster's duty is to provide a note of levity near the end of the meeting. The joke should require less than 2 minutes to tell. It should provide a moment of humor in good taste (no off-color stories, please) coinciding with the theme of the meeting whenever possible. This position provides a rotating opportunity for members to practice the use of humor orally before a group.

The Joke should be delivered from a standing position near the Jokemaster's seat. The Presiding Officer will ask for the joke at the appropriate time. (Normally this is at the end of the meeting.)
