Speaker Selection
  • Choose a speaker with a topic of information, educational, motivational, or entertainment value that will be of general interest to all club members.
  • Refrain from controversial topics that could arouse anger and division among members.
  • Avoid repetition – look for a new speaker and a fresh topic.
  • Refrain from political or religious topics. Rotary International is a non-political and non-religious organization.
  • Avoid local representatives of non-profit organizations when their primary purpose is to solicit funding. 
  • Refrain from product or service promotion.
