Information for Speakers
Thank you for agreeing to speak to the Raleigh Rotary Club! This information is designed to answer the questions you may have regarding the event and to request information from you that will enable us to announce your talk.


The Rotary Club of Raleigh has been meeting in downtown Raleigh since 1914. Members represent local businesses, government, and charities and are typically in the 35-65 age range. They are interested in local and national politics, sports and of course business trends. Typical attendance is between 60 and 80 members.


The club meets at the City Club, Raleigh in a large banquet room from 12:15 to 1:30 pm every Monday and enjoy a buffet lunch. Members tend to start arriving at around 12:10 - please feel free to do so yourself, if you'd like to meet them. The meeting starts at 12:45, and the speaker will typically begin at 1:00, for 20 to 25 minutes, including Q&A, and end sharply at 1:30. Dress code for these meetings is business casual.

The club provides the following facilities:
  • A lectern
