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). Also, sponsoring the cost of the venue rental is welcome. This way members can assure that we are able to bring the best speakers to DC. Should you be interested in sponsoring a speaker or the venue rental, please let our President know at ccboyer@comcast.net.
