Advanced Communication

Club Meeting RolesDo you desire to achieve your highest potential as a speaker and leader? Members can further develop their skills both inside and outside of the club environment by participating in advanced programs, speaker series, and workshops, as well as leadership and volunteer opportunities.

Advanced Communication Series

After receiving Competent Communicator (CC) recognition, you can begin the Advanced Communication Series. There are 15 manuals, each containing five speech projects. You may choose the manuals to complete that best match and the skills you want to develop. While working in the advanced manuals, you’ll refine and enhance your speaking skills and become eligible for several awards. Eligibility requirements are listed below.
