Program Committee

The Program Committee selects speakers and guides them through the Members Meeting and a lunch afterwards.  These talks are intended to educate and inform our members on broad issues, such as science & technology, economics, arts & literature, sports, history, law & justice, health and world & political affairs, as well as the operations of local businesses and service organizations of particular interest to RMA members. Our principal program objective is to offer thought-provoking and sometimes controversial presentations on a wide range of subjects, usually presented by experts in their fields.

When a speaker is selected to make a presentation to RMA, the Program Committee names a Presenter.  This member of the RMA Program Committee serves as the contact with the speaker and makes all necessary arrangements to make the speaker’s visit to RMA as successful as possible.

Five documents are available to assist the Presenter (click on document below):
