New Member Craft Talk @ The NEW Santa Ana Elks Club
Feb 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

A Craft Talk is a program within a meeting where members talk about their business and themselves. In a semi-formal sense, the person giving the Craft Talk is accomplishing two things: First, to some extent they are promoting their business or organization. Secondly, and often more importantly, they are letting the other members know their talents, expertise and skills so we know who to turn to for advice when we begin our next service project.

Each member brings their particular skill to our community service projects and the running of the club. Sometimes our community service projects don’t require any specific skills, but often, we undertake complex projects wherein the talents of our members are crucial for success. Just as this diversity in talent enables local and international service, it provides many of the organizational skills that make a club thrive.  By being a Rotarian you have direct and personal access to business and community leaders.
