Welcome to the first meeting of the new year!
The theme for this week's meeting is College Bowl Games. As Julian doesn't know a thing about football, he punted discussion of the sport to Brandon for Table Topics. Andy choose the word of the day of "Roll Tide" because of Alabama's national win earlier in the week. Thankfully the theme of the day also involved football - although that seemed secondary for Andy.
We had only one speaker this week. Earlier in 2012, Tim spoke to us about his New Year's resolutions. At the start of 2013, he wanted to update us on how he did and where he is going this year. His speech, from the Competent Communicator manual, was entitled M&Ms. Tim told us that our goals need to be measurable and they need to matter. Excellent advice from an excellent speech.
