Have you enjoyed the recent speakers at Columbus Rotary? The Columbus Rotary Program Committee has worked with President Diane Lease and Executive Director Scott Brown to make certain the club has engaging, high quality speakers for our premier membership activity – weekly luncheon meetings. Their mission is simple, but critical - to identify, select and coordinate the scheduling of weekly speakers that appeal to the broad interests of our membership and prospective members.

The committee meets quarterly and the remainder of their work is done electronically and by phone. They work to stay a few months ahead, and provide speakers that include industry and business leaders, subject matter experts and special topics that members might not normally be able to hear. From the initial suggestion, to committee review of potential topics, to scheduling; the members like to be personally involved.

New committee Chair Brian Dean cites the outstanding work of the entire team for putting together the schedule, and thanks previous Chair Chip Chapman for his leadership, as well as the committee who contribute many hours to ensure a full and engaging schedule.
