California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) professor, Shirley Fleischman, announced that her Speech and Debate Club will have official meetings starting in February.
Fleischaman said she “used to be a speech and debate competitor in high school,” which led her to become the advisor for the newly established Speech and Debate Club. Fleischman’s goal is to have a speech and debate tournament with the clubs’ 20 members going against another college’s speech and debate team.
Fleischman also wants to get the club “affiliated with the National Communication Organization (NCA),” in hopes the students in the club will “receive a spot in the NCA’s Honors Society.”
The Speech and Debate Club is in the process of becoming an official CSUMB organization, so meeting dates and times will be announced soon.
