Hot and Cool Topics? What are they?

By Nancy Cohen

Everyone knows:  a Hot Topic is something big everyone is talking about now.

To LWVPBC members and friends, Hot Topics is also a monthly chance to meet your friends, get acquainted with new members, hear a great speaker discuss an important issue, and eat a super lunch in a welcoming environment.

Our next Hot Topic is Wednesday May 17: Deirdre McNab speaking on “Solar for Florida”.  Atlantis Country Club, 190 Atlantis Boulevard, Lake Worth, $25.  Click here to register online or call Estelle Friedman 561-968-4123.

So, what is a Cool Topic?

To LWVPBC members and friends, Cool Topics (aka General Membership meetings) are a chance to engage on a timely and important subject with your friends in a more informal setting after work or on the weekend.

This is a new format:

  • shorter evening or Saturday meetings
  • in a central location which allow for
  • more discussion and interaction.

Cool Topics are free, although donations for water and nibbles are always welcome.

So far, the reception has been great.  Send me your comments and ideas for other Cool Topics:

Our next Cool Topic is Saturday June 3rd: a panel of local and national media will explore “Alternative Facts”.
