     On April 15, 2003, Talk America Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") set the time
and  date  for its 2003 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") as
10:00  a.m.,  Eastern  Time,  on June 18, 2003.  The meeting will be held at the
Sheraton  Reston Hotel, 11810 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, Virginia 20191.  The
record  date for determination of stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote
at  the  meeting  is  April  21,  2003.

     Because  this  meeting  date is more than 30 days in advance of the date of
last  year's  meeting,  we are informing the Company's stockholders, pursuant to
Rule  14a-5(f)  of  the  Securities  Exchange  Act  of  1934,  of  the following

     1.   Stockholder  proposals  intended to be presented at the Annual Meeting
          and  considered  for  inclusion  in the proxy statement for the Annual
          Meeting  must  be  received  by  the Company at its principal offices,
          12020  Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, Virginia 20190 by April 30, 2003.

     2.   A  stockholder  of the Company who wishes to present a proposal before
          the Annual Meeting but does not wish the proposal to be considered for
          inclusion  in  the Company's proxy statement and proxy card, must give
          written  notice  to  the Secretary of the Company at the address noted
          above  by  April  30,  2003.  If a stockholder fails to provide timely
          notice  of  such  a  proposal,  the proxies designated by the Board of
          Directors of the Company will have the discretionary authority to vote
          on  the  proposal.

     The  Company  expects to mail its proxy materials to its stockholders on or
about  May  6,  2003.


     Pursuant  to  the  requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant  has  duly  caused  this  report  to  be  signed on its behalf by the
undersigned  hereunto  duly  authorized.
