How to form your own lecture series…
The first step in forming your own lecture series is finding somewhere to hold the lectures, such as a church, library, or school. The second step is finding veterans willing to speak in front of an audience. The best place to find veterans would be to write or phone a nearby American Legion or VFW Post. The third step is advertising your lecture series. You can make a large poster about your upcoming lectures and put it on display in a public area. You can contact local newspapers to publish information about your lecture series. You will have to set up dates and times of lectures with the guest speaker and the place where the lecture is held. The lecture series in Abington and Doylestown both use an audio system to amplify the speaker's voice and also use a videotape recorder to record lectures. These two systems are not necessary but do help to make the lecture more professional. It helps to put a donation jar out to raise funds for your lecture series. That way, you could provide coffee and snacks before and after each lecture. If you need assistance to start you own lecture series contact Mr. Donald Lee of Abington, PA at
Lee@wwiilectureinstitute.com. Donald Lee has over five years of experience at the Abington Lecture Series and is willing to help anyone to start their own lecture series.
