We need members to suggest 
venues and speakers. 
Would you like to have an event 
close to home? Let us know. 
As a local, you are the best person 
to suggest a location.

You're not alone! 
The board will be happy to help with 
the catering contract and other details.

As for a speaker, don’t be afraid to 
think outside of the box. 
We are a foreign affairs group 
but one of our most enjoyable speakers spoke on the 
history of Florida.
