Yesterday I received a call from the Green Party of the United States Media Team which issued an invitation to me to be on the GPUS Speakers Bureau. I was interviewed on tape last year by the national media team at the GPUS Annual National Meeting in Tucson, AZ. I also was a speaker at the GPUS Women’s Caucus Press Conference (link to video clip) at the same National Meeting.
I want to accept. I need more confidence, though. And I way need more knowledge on issues which I continually strive to do through reading, listening and talking to people.
Thinking out loud: I’m not always a confident speaker unless I have a script. But then what can give me more confidence than just jumping in and doing it? I am told that I present myself well at events where I give speeches.
When I ran for Salt Lake County Council in 2006 my issues were varied, but primarily focused on women’s issues and transportation. I can speak passionately about those issues and want to learn more about those issues so I can serve as a more informed speaker.
I’m inclined, then, to accept.
