Sponsor-a-Speaker Program: 
In 2012, ARCE-DC established this program whereby a member can sponsor a speaker's honorarium, travel costs, and/or host a speaker for a home stay (usually one night). Also, sponsoring the cost of the venue rental is welcome. Should you be interested in sponsoring a speaker or the venue rental in one or more of these ways, please let our President know at ccboyer@comcast.net.
