The purpose of the Ah/Um counter is to note words and sounds used as a crutch or pause filler by anyone who speaks during the meeting.
Words may be inappropriate interjections, such as, “Ah”, “Um”, “and”, “well”, “so”, where a speaker repeats a word unnecessarily. When introduced by the Chairman briefly explain the role.
Keep a tally of “infringements” and give a brief report when called on towards the end of the meeting.
