The highlight of DMA’s weekly meeting is the speaker. Topics include history, health, politics, the arts, media, and world affairs. The quality and variety of the presentations are something we all look forward to. In turn, Speakers tell us that the audience, usually about 200, is attentive and informed.

Presentations start at 10:45 followed by Q&A. Meetings end by noon. Spouses are invited to attend. With the Speaker’s permission, a video of the presentation is attached to the post announcing the Speaker.

Under the leadership of our Speakers Chairman, John Wolcott, and his committee we have another outstanding program for the 2017/18 year. Here is the summary. For details about a specific speaker, click on Speaker Announcements category.
