The selection of speakers for NPC Luncheons and Newsmaker events is determined by a committee of club members. The committee meets to discuss possible speakers, then sends invitations to those selected. Occasionally, suggestions from non-members are forwarded to the committee for evaluation. Such suggestions should be forwarded to staff member Melinda Cooke. A proposal should include a brief biography of the speaker, the proposed topic, and when the speaker would like to appear at the Club.
