All City Club members are welcome and encouraged to come to Program Committee meetings and to join the committee.

Q: How do I propose a speaker or topic for a City Club program?

A: We are always looking for forum ideas and speakers. Please send ideas and materials to City Club and they will be passed on to the Program Committee.

Q: What are the criteria for selecting a City Club speaker?

A: Speakers are chosen at the discretion of the Program Committee. Criteria for picking speakers include:

  • Established speaking ability
  • Credibility/expertise of speaker on the proposed topic (How will professionals in the field regard the speaker? Is this a good topic but the wrong speaker?)
  • Marquee value (Is he/she a "name" speaker that will draw a crowd?)
  • Does the speaker have a "hidden agenda" or is there any self-promotion involved?

For forum topics:

  • Is there a clear, concise and defined subject?
  • Timeliness of topic
  • Is the topic of broad interest to Club members and the community?
  • The relationship to City Club's overall programming

Other considerations:

  • Format: What is the best way to feature the speaker or subject: single speaker, debate or panel?
  • Marketing: How might we broaden the interest in, and attendance at, this program? What other groups could we contact? Is a co-sponsorship possible?
  • Source of the recommendation
