Congratulations! You have nominated your favorite Central Oregon charity…… now what can you expect?
When you arrive at the meeting and check in, we will place a nomination slip with your name and the name of the non-profit you nominated into a bowl with all the other nominations. We will draw three slips at random at the beginning of the meeting to determine who gets to pitch their charity at the meeting. If your name is drawn, you will be asked to stand and give a 5 minute informal (no PowerPoints or other visual aids) presentation about the non-profit you that you nominated. This presentation should be casual and from the heart. But it should also be substantive, touching on some of the topics below.
** Please note: There may be multiple nominations for the same organization, but only one presentation may be made per meeting–the first nomination chosen will be the one to present at that meeting.
You have 5 minutes to MAKE YOUR PITCH so COME PREPARED and MAKE IT COUNT
Our members want to make an informed decision about where to cast their vote and will have some good questions for you. Please make sure that you have done your homework and that you are prepared to answer their questions!
Celebrate our good work!
The winning organization will be asked to return to our next meeting to tell the membership how its donation helped the organization.
