¹ For each Speakers League club you operate (and if you wish to offer workshops), you must possess a valid Speakers League Club Charter. A Charter is a $95 annually renewable license that gives you the right to use the Speakers League materials for one club, and to take advantage of the other benefits and support outlined. You also agree to our terms and conditions. A Speakers League Club is defined as a single group of students that meets on a regular ongoing basis and conducts Speakers League structured meetings. Adjust quantities on your order form if purchasing more than one Charter. 15% discount applies when purchasing five or more charters.
² Workshops are defined as short-term trainings (usually 6-16 sessions) at which a new group of students typically enrolls for each workshop series. You must have a Club Charter ($95) to allow you to conduct workshops. Workshop materials are different from regular club materials. You do not need to purchase a license for each workshop you hold. One charter/license authorizes all workshops held for the year. You do not need to run a club to be able to run workshops, but you need to hold a club charter to run workshops.
³ Some meeting locations may require that you have liability insurance. Speakers League can provide up to $2 million in general liability insurance with respect to the conduct of Speakers League activities for all qualified Speakers League club and workshop events and meeting sites. Your club must hold a Charter, in good standing, and follow Speakers League policies, terms, and conditions regarding the activities taking place. If Speakers League determines that the event is not within its guidelines, the insurance request will be denied and the Charter holder will be notified. (For non-U.S. restrictions, read our Terms and Conditions.) One liability insurance order can cover up to five charters/clubs.
⁴ The Club Store is where charter holders can opt to order club materials, such as a portable lectern, pre-printed member handbooks, woven ribbons. Keep in mind that charter holders receive access to all of the downloadable materials and can easily print out things like member handbooks, or cardstock ribbons. The option to have us print materials is for your convenience.
⁵ Club-in-a-Box Fast Start Kit – Many clubs opt to print out forms and handbooks as needed from our instantly-downloadable materials. However, if you like the idea of everything ready to go, we offer our “Club-in-a-Box” startup kit. It is a fast, easy, and cost-effective way to get the materials you’ll need for around 20 meetings and up to 20 members. Charging your students a modest $20-$25 materials fee will defray this cost.
