The Lecturer/Program Director holds one of the most challenging and rewarding positions in the Grange. The job is two-fold. First of all, it is the Lecturer’s responsibility to present or arrange for a program at each regular Grange meeting.   Lecturers should strive to have well balanced programs which include elements of educational information, fun activities and inspirational messages. Music should be included whenever possible. Recorded music is perfectly acceptable. Consider having a program that helps to promote the various contests such as a mini photography or art class.  Perhaps an acting workshop would encourage some members to work on a skit or monologue for the talent contest. It is important to foster a good relationship with the Grange Master/President so that time for the program does not become an issue.

Secondly, the Lecturer/Program Director is a liaison to the community.  Invite members of the community to share their talents with the Grange as part of a program.  Respond in kind by being willing to present a program for other community organizations and/or sponsor educational programs for the community.
