Members can elect to fill the role(s) they want on the night. We need to leave a few gaps for visitors that feel confident to take on Ah Counter or Jokester.
I love the history saving feature on when our members completed their speeches and roles. When we need to submit awards, we just need to go to Communication or Leadership Progress of the member. How can that be beaten by any other planning system?
Another wonderful feature is the 'paid to' info. My club offers members the option of paying for a year at a savings of $5. During this dues renewal, any officer can see who has paid and who we need to ask to pay. Love this feature.
I use the Club Charts to monitor the progress of speeches and completion of leadership tasks before assigning the roles and scheduling the speeches. I could not do that efficiently as a VPE without it. I work with the VPM to check that members know how to set their OWN goals in easy-Speak and empower them to take charge of their education pathways.
