Speaker presentations to the council are a unique opportunity to reach and engage our member organizations in a large group setting. Our membership is diverse and consists of veterans’ organizations, businesses, government organizations, educational and religious institutions, healthcare and social service organizations, and civic groups.
LVMAC requires that these presentations address topics and issues of relevance specifically to the Lehigh Valley serving military, veterans and their families – especially where the awareness and support from our membership is needed.
As council meetings are also business meetings, speakers are generally limited to approximately twenty (20) minutes of information, allowing for questions, on a specific topic approved by and coordinated with the council’s speakers committee chairman.
Priority for speaking engagements goes to member organizations.
LVMAC administrative support for speakers includes digital projection and computer access for standard business software such as PowerPoint and Adobe Reader.
