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:

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:

12-hour POWERtalk short course introduced in the fall of 2007.
