We had our monthly committee meeting last night, via Skype, in which we plan, strategise and support one another in our various roles. A few members were unable to make it due to the summer holidays however there is always a lot to talk about, with so much going on here at Casterbridge Speakers. The big focus at the moment is our aim to become a President’s Distinguished Club. The Distinguished Club Program recognises clubs that provide the positive and supportive environment that leads to member success, within which there are 3 levels; 1) Distinguished Club; 2) Select Distinguished Club, and; 3) President’s Distinguished Club. Our President, Beverley Hepting, has aimed for the top and the committee has agreed that this goal is highly attainable.
We also set a date for our Autumn Table Topics & Humorous Speech Competition, for Wednesday 7th September 2016. Please contact Colin Beveridge if you would like to compete. The competition is a precursor to the Area Speaking Competition, on Sunday 2nd October 2016.
The next committee meeting is on the 12th September, see you all there!
