Functionary is a term often used to describe a person who plays a role in a Toastmasters meeting or contest. Toastmasters International seems to prefer the use of the term "participant role" or meeting role [1] instead. Some clubs use the term "assistant" for some of the roles. Typical functionary roles may include Ah Counter, Balloter, Sergeant-at-Arms and others.

A functionary should not be confused with a dignitary.
