Request To Speak

Are we aware of you and your organization? We love hearing presentations from people doing good things in the community — whether it is a charity, a community organization or something else that benefits our membership and community.

While not all of our speakers are from charity organizations or community organizations, many are. If you feel you are an organization that would benefit from our financial support through the grant process, and you fit the criteria described therein, we would like to hear what you have to say. We want to know who you are, what you do and why we should support you. Contact our Speaker Chair for more information.

(You may bring your own laptop, or you may load your presentation to a USB drive and have it integrated with the Club’s Power Point presentation)
