Though I realize it would be a rare society event that would occur on Sunday, I cannot accept a speaking engagement on a Sunday.

Fee range is negotiable. $125 will be charged for established societies. $0-124 will be charged for societies that are new, smaller, or struggling to become established. Expenses, such as hotel and travel expenses (gas, ferry, etc.), are an additional charge. I am willing to appear in all regions of Washington State and beyond.

Fee does not include handouts. I will send a master copy set that the society can reproduce for the meeting and then retain the set for their file library.

Technical requirements:

  • For Internet-based lectures, a good WiFi connection
  • Projector with HDMI connection
  • Screen
  • Audio equipment if venue/society requires it
