SPEAKERS

Speakers

The Rotary Club of Port Moody meets virtually every Wednesday during the year. The meetings cover many topics relevant to the club planning and member activities, but an important part of the meeting is the weekly speaker.

Each week a speaker is arranged to discuss topics wide and far that are relevant to the work of Rotary or the community at large. This ensures that the members of the club are informed of important community, regional or even international issues and can make plans appropriately. It also helps build personal and professional networks.
