We would love to have a full schedule of diverse speakers and topics for our monthly program meetings. So don’t worry if your idea is a little out of the box! The Programs Committee will help you every step of the way. You don’t need to be a member to speak.

All entries will be juried by the Programs Committee and the Administrative Council, and decisions will be communicated to each submitter.

Speaking engagements are usually an hour, but if you would like to share your time with another speaker, we can make it work! We look forward to hearing from you! Visit our Program Meeting Presentations page to see past programs.
