A member completing all ten speeches will be eligible for the Competent Communicator title.
  • The Leadership Manual. This includes ten projects which will hone a variety of leadership skills, from leading a meeting to evaluations to a number of special roles. Successful completion of all ten projects will make the member eligible for the Competent Leader title.
