Speaker Events
Our FCC Speakers Series is a unique opportunity for our members and their guests to listen, engage and discuss the latest local and international events and trends at the Club. The talks, organized by the Club’s Professional Committee, are hosted in the FCC’s main dining room, usually over lunch and occasionally over breakfast or dinner. The speaker typically gives initial remarks for 20 minutes and then takes questions for 20 minutes. The events are on the record, and videos of them go up on the Club’s website.

Aside from organizing guest speakers, the Professional Committee plans and produces evening documentary screenings, educational workshops, debates, speed-networking opportunities and events that benefit FCC members and provide opportunities for correspondents and journalists to grow professionally. See below for a full list of all club activities.
