I Would Like to Lobby for a New Forum on OB Male

Those who give talks which are not on the official lists, again like myself, offer services personally to groups (not exclusively orchid groups) directly. I would have thought that maintaining such lists on this forum would not be a productive use of resources bearing in mind locations, distances and the wide audience.
The AOS has a list of speakers too. But, each speaker is limited to 3 topics in this listing. I currently have 10 different presentations on a variety of subjects, and nowhere to make that known (other than my own web site).

Please put that information on the new forum, Kim. http://www.orchidboard.com/community/speaker-referral/
Caveat: Everything suggested is based on my environment and culture. Please adjust accordingly.
