Things to Do

  • Getting Started We are going to use a lot of google resources this year.  We need a way to standardize what we do and google has almost everything we need, but to take full advantage you will need a gmail account and the ability to get online for a few hours each week.  When you have a gmail account, please email the Club gmail account at: rivercityspeechclub@gmail.com and we can go from there.  There will eventually be calendars, forms, discussion boards, and other ways to share information.  We want to use these resources to build speeches, then meet together to practice and perfect them.
