Speakers and Programs

The Rotary Club welcomes speakers to its weekly meetings and Rotarians appreciate the opportunity to come to you.  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 or inviting us to your location, please  email us at northcoastrotaryclub@gmail.com.

 Information For Speakers

     Meetings are held at 7:30 AM Tuesdays with our speakers scheduled for 8 AM on our agenda. Our location may vary.

     The Rotarian who has been your contact will greet you and provide assistance.  Please provide him / her a brief bio for your introduction.  Our Rotary meeting will commence at 7:30 AM. We will take a brief break just before 8 AM when  you will be introduced to give your presentation.  We suggest a 10 – 15 minute presentation plus a couple minutes for questions.  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.

     If you have additional questions concerning our meetings, your presentation, or directions, please contact the Rotarian who has scheduled your presentation.
