Sponsor-a-Speaker Program— 

In 2012 ARCE-DC established the Sponsor-a-Speaker program whereby a member can sponsor a speaker's honorarium, travel costs, and/or host a speaker for a home stay (usually one night). Sponsoring the cost of the venue rental is also welcome. This allows the chapter to bring the best speakers to D.C. Should you be interested in sponsoring a speaker or the venue rental, please let our President know at ccboyer@comcast.net
