Speakers Bank

Recommended Posts

Are professionals normally registered in the Speaker's Bank database? Professionals give a lot of talks and presentations about the program so it seems only natural but as a new DE, my council hasn't mentioned it to me. Any thoughts?

I'd talk to your Field Director about it. I'm one of three or four registered in my council and I get called about once every six months to give a speech to a service club or church. The SE may or may not want you on the Bank list until after you're officially commissioned.

So are you only available to do speeches for the Speakers Bank if you're asked to? You can't set them up yourself?

While I am not a professional, but a volunteer, and I set up all my own speeches.

 

I have been called by some local groups who heard I did a speech elsewhere. Never been asked by Council to do one -- and I have my speaker's bank knot.

There's a knot for this? Seems like a knot that's less common then. I don't think I've ever seen one on anybody.

E2000 --

 

Yes, it is earned after you have given and recorded 20 speeches in the Speaker's Bank database. At 10 you receive a special "Speaker" position patch. These both come from National.

I think I know 4-5 folks who have this knot.
