10th - 12th May in Norwich. All district-level speech contests (Humorous speech, Table Topics, International speech, and Evaluation) are to be conducted only at the annual district conference.
As District 71, our shared goal is to finish as a distinguished district. Resulting in recognition as the Hall of Fame at the International Convention in Denver, August 2019. One team, one dream. Let us work together and achieve this. Club Officers, I’d love to attend at least one of your committee meetings each quarter and learn your plans and strategies. Members, let us know how we can support your journey. Have a vision for your development this year and share it, the club/community will hold you accountable.
Do get in touch with any questions or suggestions.
