                         Resources and Requirements
Duties Generally
   1. Schedule weekly programs. I strongly suggest recruiting members to be responsible for
      particular blocks of time.
   2. Serve as alternate liaison to venue e.g. advising of extra anticipated guests (president is
      the primary).
   3. Confirm speakers in the week preceding a program.
   4. Prepare contingency plans in case scheduled programs are canceled.
   5. Update this document as needed for the benefit of those who come after you.

Specific Goals
   1.   Keep the schedule full at least two months in advance.
   2.   Organize a committee to schedule assigned parts of the Rotary year
   3.   Formulate a contingency plan for handling last-minute cancellations
   4.   Contact the president and establish yourself as the alternate liaison to the venue

Resources
   1. Subject matter. Organized meetings that feature interesting, relevant programs will
      enhance members’ personal Rotary knowledge, reinforce the value of continued
      membership, and make members aware of their local and world community. Rotary
      calendar. The Rotary calendar is a resource for planning weekly meetings. At the
      beginning of the year, introduce the new RI theme and discuss events such as the district
      conference and the RI Convention as they occur. You can also plan programs based on
      these special Rotary year observances:
              August Membership and Extension Month
              September New Generations Month
              October Vocational Service Month
              November Rotary Foundation Month
              World Interact Week (week including 5 November)
              December Family Month
              January Rotary Awareness Month
              February World Understanding Month
              23 February: World Understanding and Peace Day/
              March Literacy Month
              World Rotaract Week (week including 13 March)
              April Magazine Month
              June Rotary Fellowships Month
      Appropriate subject matter for programs can include nearly anything that will interest the
      membership. For instance, current events in the community, educational programs, and
      civic-minded programs can all be good choices.

   2. Recurring Programs or Meeting Replacements:
            Chili Open. Mid-late January at the request of the Chili Open committee chair.
            State of The City Address. February or March. This date moves significantly
               from year to year.
            Technology and Information Award (5-10 min pre-program)
                  o Terry Dalton schedules a year in advance March through May

              minutes left over)

             Chili Open Kick-Off. September.

3. Subject matter to avoid:
          a. Sales presentations
          b. Politicians running for office
          c. Politically partisan subject matter unless a counterbalancing opinion is also
             presented
          d. Speakers that may conflict with the vocation of a member

4. Members. Members often will come to you with programs. In general, you should
   schedule them if possible. The members are also a good source of contingency
   programming to fill a last-minute opening. A general email to the membership will return
   ample leads.

5. District Site. The district web site includes a list of available speakers and the topics
   they present. This can serve as good source of programming ideas as well as speakers.

6. Past Programming Chairs. Any past Programming Chair can be a good source of
   ideas. The names of these individuals can be found at the front page of this booklet.

7. Projector. This is kept at the camp. Reserve this with D. Reynolds at least a day in
   advance.

8. Club Runner. All speakers are to be entered into Club Runner as they are scheduled. It
   is important that Club Runner remains current so that other members can refer speakers
   accordingly, and so that they know who the speaker will be in advance of any given
   meeting.
