Fellows of ITC
Certified Speech Contest Judges
Certified POWERtalk Short Course Trainers

To complement our Accreditation Program, two new programs were introduced in 2004-05, and snother in 2007-08.
1. Fellows of ITC are first class POWERtalk International Trainers who excel in all forms of communication, interaction, presentation, training and evaluation ability.  To become Fellows they have been graded at 80% or better on a series of rigorous assignments in each of these areas.
Six members of Northeast Region are now Fellows of ITC:
  • Hilary Bartlett          (Toronto ON)
  • Geraldine Lightfoot (North Bay ON)
  • June Pietrantoni     (Winchester MA)
  • Carol Preiss            (Rochester NY)
  • Karen Sherry           (North Bay ON)
  • 2. Certified speech contest judges are members who have experience in judging contests in this and other organizations. As the final step in their certification, they were required to judge an international competition and were then assessed on their results. 

    Only one current member of Northeast Region is Certified Speech Contest Judge:
  • Shelley Petley       (Fredericton NB)
  • 3. Certified POWERtalk Short Course trainers are experienced members who have been trained specifically to teach the 12-hour POWERtalk short course introduced in the fall of 2007.

    Northeast Region now boasts a number of these trainers. A list of these members is available below. They are available to facilitate courses to members or nonmembers in their geographic area.

    For more information on these programs or to contact any of these specialists, see the Contacts tab.
