The Rotary Club welcomes speakers to its weekly meetings.  The Club is particularly interested in  the communities’ economic development, its’ services, charitable organizations, educational programs, the arts, parks and recreation, military and veterans’ services, and other topics of import to the four communities we serve.  Should you be interested in presenting to our club, please  email us at northcoastrotaryclub@gmail.com.

Information For Speakers

Meetings are held at 7:30 AM Tuesdays at 500 Community Drive – Grace Hall, Avon Lake, Ohio 44012. Doors are open at 7 AM and we suggest you arrive in time to view the room, set up your presentation, and distribute any handouts.

The Rotarian who has been your contact will greet you and provide assistance.  Please provide him / her a brief bio for your introduction.  After breakfast  you will be introduced to give your presentation.  We suggest a 10 – 15 minute presentation plus a couple minutes for questions.  Following your presentation and Q&A, there will be a short club business meeting.  You are welcome to stay for the business meeting, but we understand if you must leave earlier.  The meeting will end no later than 8:30 AM.  If you are available, Club members may want to talk with you following your presentation.

Attendance usually is about 10-25 members. You may bring brochures to distribute to club members. Distribution of brochures is permitted only for information or events that are open to the entire community, free of charge, and do not have a religious or political purpose. Distribution of documents or making statements during the program to promote sales is not permitted.

The acoustics are good for presentations without a microphone.

Directions: In Avon Lake, Community Drive is easily accessed from Route 83 just north of its intersection with Walker Road or on Walker Road east of its intersection with Route 83. Follow Community drive to to the Main Street Care Center building – large portico over entrance.

  • Parking is available west of the building’s entrance.
  • Continue straight down the hallway to Grace Hall (our meeting room)

If you have additional questions concerning our meetings, your presentation, or directions, please contact the Rotarian who has scheduled your presentation or Mary Crehore  at mcrehore@gmail.com.
