If you are thinking of coming to a Rostrum meeting for the first time don't stress out - we were all raw and nervous once! Our members know exactly how the novice feels, since we have all been through the same experience.

Listening

Visitors:

As a visitor attending one of our meetings we don't expect you to give a speech. Visitors normally come along to have a look and listen and see what we have to offer.

New Members:

It's only after you have become a member that you would be scheduled to give a speech, and the first speeches are always short and on easy topics. As you gain confidence and experience you can move on to longer and more challenging topics, but this happens at your pace in consultation with the Program Director, - see Your First Speech for more information.

Another aspect of Rostrum is learning about and gaining experience in meeting procedures. Club members take turns in taking minutes & chairing meetings. As a new member you'd also get your turn, but we don't throw you in at the deep end – when it's your turn to chair a meeting we provide a chairman’s running sheet & an experienced member will sit with you to provide support and assistance.

How can you join?

When you decide to join Rostrum an existing club member will need to nominate you as a member. Your application is then read at two meetings, & a vote of members is then taken. Once your nomination is accepted, you will be inducted into the club in a simple ceremony and be issued a New Member's Kit.

Cost of Membership

The Club 23 membership fee is currently $80 every six months ($160/year). Student members pay half the regular fee.
