Speaker’s Bureau Program

Our District offers its Club Program Chairs two options for sourcing excellent and exciting programs.  We recommend you take advantage of both.

Online Speakers Bureau

This is a service we subscribe to, and it allows all those who are interested in presenting club programs to place an advertisement for the program on a database, which is then easily accessible by all clubs.  Clubs can search this database by topic, city or any word which appears in the listing.  At present, there are approximately 40 listings covering topics such as Youth Exchange, Habitat for Humanity, Story Telling, Surviving Brain Cancer and many others.  Using the “submit a speaker” function, new programs can be added.

Sign up for D5100 Speaker e-Newsletters

Simply stated, this is an email announcement which is sent out to all subscribers two or three times a month.  The email passes along club recommendations for recent speakers who have been especially compelling. You can provide recommendations or sign-up to receive recommendations by sending an email to RC East Portland Rotarian Brandon Wooters, who is our coordinator for this service.

We believe having excellent and compelling programs is a key component of being a vibrant club, and these two services are available to help you find programs that will keep your members (and your visitors!) coming back for more.
