Fellows of ITC and Certified Speech Contest Judges

To complement our Accreditation Program, two new programs were introduced in 2004-05.
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.
Five members of Northeast Region are Fellows of ITC, including Carol Preiss from New Directions.

2. Certified speech contest judges are members who have experience in judging contests in ITC 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. 

There are currently two Certified Judges in Northeast Region. They reside in New Brunswick and Ontario, Canada.

3. Certified POWERtalk Short Course trainers are experienced members who have been trained specifically to teach the new 12-hour POWERtalk short course.

Several members of the New Directions chapter are certified trainers.

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