Guest Speaker Guidelines

 

Thank you for agreeing to serve as a “guest speaker” for an upcoming Owensboro Rotary Club meeting.

Our weekly lunch meeting is held at the Owensboro Country Club at 400 E. Byers Ave, Owensboro, KY (270-683-6265). The meeting begins at 12:00 PM and concludes at 1:00 PM. You are our guest – so when you get to the check-in table, please don’t pay!

The business portion of the meeting usually begins at 12:20 PM., with the guest speaker generally being introduced at about 12:30 PM. Please allow 15-20 minutes of presentation, and a few minutes for Q&A at the end.

To help you prepare your presentation, here are a few guidelines/tips:

  • There are typically 100 members, including visiting Rotarians and guests in attendance.
  • Presentations should be non-political and non-sectarian.
  • Presenters may not solicit a financial or in-kind donation or request purchase of products or services. It is okay for you to talk about your business/organization and its services. It is NOT okay to make a “sales pitch” or directly solicit purchases or donations. You are more than welcome to invite interested members to stay after the meeting to talk with you.
  • Handouts for club members and guests are welcome.
  • The club does not have audio-visual technology of its own, but presenters occasionally use overhead projectors or LCD displays of their own. Please let us know if you have specific needs.

If you have any questions, please contact the Rotary Club member who invited you.

Thank you.

We look forward to your presentation!
