Leadership and Public Speaking Course

The Leadership and Public Speaking Course runs once a week for 6 weeks. During those 6 weeks students will have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills as well as learn about League structure and protocol as well as how to run effective council meetings; make a motion; write a report; introduce and thank a guest speaker; etc.  

This course is recommended for all CWL members and especially those holding or planning to hold an executive position.

Due to the course design it is very important that those participating make every effort to attend all 6 classes. There is homework that needs to be completed and then presented the following class. So it you miss a class you have to catch up the next week. Homework includes a combination of reading, reviewing, writing and most important - PRACTICING!!

For a course to take place there are three requirements:

  • 15- 20 ladies representing at least 4 or 5 different councils that want to take the course
  • A parish willing to host the course (provide a hall with  tables, chairs, microphone and podium once a week for 6 weeks) 
  • Two or more facilitiators willing to lead the course.

If you are interested in hosting a course, taking a course or being a facilitator contact your Regional Chair.
