Guidelines for Guest Speakers
Our club includes enthusiastic seniors ranging from those just learning about the computer world to “experts” who have given knowledgeable presentations to the club. Depending on the topic, 65 to 140 (of the 200+) members attend the presentations. We encourage speakers to allow time for Questions & Answers and suggest it is very helpful if you repeat the question before you answer.
Our Club meets Wednesdays from 12:30pm to 2:30pm in the upstairs auditorium at the Kent Street Activity Centre (KSAC) located at 1475 Kent Street in White Rock. Our President begins with a few welcoming words and then introduces the Guest Speaker. We break for 15 minutes for coffee, tea and cookies at 1:30pm. After that, the guest speaker can then continue with their presentation from 1:45pm to 2:30pm.
We have a special reserved “Guest Parking Spot” for your convenience located off Russell Avenue which will be available for you from 12:00pm to 2:45pm allowing you time to set up and remove any equipment you have supplied for your presentation. See page 2 for a view of the rear of the building from Russell Avenue with a car parked in the reserved spot. The entrance to the presentation hall is on the same level, just behind the parked car, and the double doors are open after 12:00pm. In case you find you are running late for the meeting, the phone number of the Kent Centre is 604-541-2231.
Please drive in via Russell Avenue & park under the tree to where the car is in the photo below.
