Current Year Speakers List

In regard to speakers, variety and balance in speaker subject matter is of utmost importance. We have identified the following as the main areas of topics of presentations by our speakers: Arts and Culture, Business and Industry, Economic and Financial, Education, Environment, Global Affairs, Health, History, Science, Sports. As stated by our founding President, John Leonard, in the February 2004 edition of Shorelines:
“The objectives of our speakers and their presentations should be to tell us where we are going, not just where we are or where we have been. We continue to seek speakers who are leaders in their fields, who can help us look at current affairs with perhaps a totally different perspective, even when we may not fully agree with them.”
Below is the  lists of Guest Speakers for our current year.
