We’ve been asked, “Do I have to be a good public speaker?”

Our answer: ¬†You have to be good at being yourself. You’ll be speaking to friends and family, because that’s what we are as Phi Theta Kappa members.

 

We’ve been asked, “Is it time consuming?”

Our answer: It can be, but it’s almost never as demanding as one would expect. Certain regional positions definitely have a higher time demand, but overall it won’t take over your life. In general, there are only three times you’ll be required to travel: the Regional Training at the start of your term in office, the Fall Conference, and the Spring Conference. Almost all other events with be situational. Besides events and conferences there will be your team meetings worked out to everyone’s schedule as best as possible and the individual duties per position.
