This is the Buddies way of providing newcomers with more speaking opportunities at the end of each month.  There are six prepared speech slots to take instead of three. To make time for this, the speeches will only be only evaluated in writing after the meeting. Each evaluator is expected to watch the speech to be evaluated and complete the corresponding evaluation form after the meeting. 
Thanks for being our Buddy!

We meet every Saturday 1PM UTC in Zoom. Guests: to join our meeting, please email buddiestmi@gmail.com for meeting room information.

Reminder: In a Speech-A-Thon, evaluators only provide written evaluations. Because there are no verbal evaluations, there is no best evaluator poll during Speech-A-Thons.
