As noted in my biography, I do have a day job in addition to my role as Chief Monster Officer. As a result, I’ve learned a lot about a lot of different topics, including how to run a meeting. For a maximally productive meeting, it helps to have certain roles filled, and filling these roles around your game table can help make your experience better.

In general, with the possible exception of the Leader role, it’s useful to spread these roles around, unless you are fortunate enough to find someone at the table who both likes doing the job and is good at it. Awarding bennies to volunteers for these roles is one way to get the players more excited about participating. From the GMs side of the table, having the party more organized in this fashion really streamlines play, and the notes from the scribe can help track those improvisational details that might make good stories later.
