Happy New Year. The sun is shining, the days are getting longer and we’re looking forward to a busy few months at B&H Speakers.
Membership Drive – Taster Event – 25th January 2017
Next week will be a normal meeting but with one fewer speech giving time for the Toastmaster to explain to guests the various aspects of the club. We’re trying to get the word out that all guests are welcome.
Members can help:
• Repost the social media links below.
• Invite guests – Tell your friends and colleagues.
• Volunteer for a role and prepare a short description of the role as you will be asked to present this.
— B&H Speakers Club (@BAHSC) January 12, 2017
Fees are under pressure because of the price hike by Toastmasters International last year and the fall of the pound against the dollar. We are therefore raising joining fee from £ 16 to £18 and will review semi-annual fees in March.
Speakathon – 8th February 2017
There are currently many people trying to book speaking slots. This happens from time to time and we alleviate the pressure by holding a Speaktahon with extra speaking slots. The first meeting of February will be a Speakthon.
B&H Speakers Contest – 8th March 2017
We will hold an International Speech Contest & Evaluation Contest on the 8th March. All members are welcome to enter.

Winners of the B&H Contest can go forward to the Area contest which B&H peakers will also be hosting and we will welcome members from other clubs in the South East.
