Sample Program for Speakers from Past Seasons

The format calls for a full hour's program divided between presentation and discussion. A reception follows which encourages meetings and further dialogue with the guest of honor. Speakers are scheduled once a month throughout the summer/fall season and then meetings resume May. The subject matter for these presentations is broad and accordingly includes any topic of interest to the membership and the community which the Council serves.
