Cleveland County Communicators takes 1st place in the Divisional International Speech Contest and 2nd place in the Divisional Table Topics Contest.

The contest was held via Zoom on Saturday April 4, 2020.

This new online presented many learning opportunities for the contestants as well as the Division A officers. The contestants had to add the elements of lighting, sound, video and limited speaking room which mandated limiting/adjusting their movements of their speeches.

Renee Bingham will represent Cleveland County Communicators in the District 37 Speech Contest which they hope to hold at the end of June. The original date for the District Contest was May 7. It had been postponed due to the pandemic.

The winner of the District 37 contest will advance to the Regionals. The winner there will advance to the Toastmasters International World Championship of Public Speaking.

Renee Bingham would like to thank Joy Scott for her help in the use of Zoom, her advice and coaching. Renee would also like to thank Chris Monroe of Monroe Tire for the use of the customer lounge and his encouragement when the technical battles seemed too great to overcome. Most of all, Renee would like to thank her husband, Gary Bingham for all his hard work to set up the screen, lighting, camera and computer. But especially for his support, love and encouragement.

Cleveland County Communicators is looking to move its meetings online during the pandemic. Watch for announcements.
