Speakers Directory

 

| Speaker Application Form |
| About CCFMS Page | CCFMS Home Page |


Many clubs have swapped the names of people who make presentations at club meetings & shows. We have set up this list to help clubs find speakers. To help us, consider filling in a Speakers Directory Application Form if you would be interested in speaking at other club meetings or pass this form on to someone who might be interested. Anytime your club has a speaker, you might also consider asking them to complete the form as well. We know there is a wealth of talent out there just waiting to be asked or prompted. Let's do it!
