Debates: Raise Attention
and Money for Your Cause

by Doug Nash


Where the location allows host a debate or guest speaker night. Debates can feature politicians, either local councilors, state or federal representatives before an election or if there is a community issue that needs attention. You can host specific speakers, such as experts in a particular field i.e., an expert to talk on issues faced by first time mums or an employee from a local financial or investment firm. Anyone on any suitable topic that is of interest to your local community.

Not only will you be providing a public service, but you will also attract much attention to your organization. By inviting people of interest to the local community the local papers will want to run more than one story, so insure that they will speak to the local paper if requested. An introduction to what you do and on the speakers but also follow up stories on how the debates or speakers performed. So generating publicity should not prove too difficult.

Funds are made by providing refreshments and drinks for the night or by charging admission. Members donate sandwiches, cake and biscuits, while drinks are purchased cheaply locally. Members are to host the refreshment stall, act as ushers and attend to any other needs for the event. When hosting a debate, make sure that the agenda allows for a break so all who attend can make the most of the refreshments provided.
