New Canaan DTC – Speaker Series

The DTC is proud to sponsor a monthly series of talks of national and global interest. Prominent leaders have been engaged to conduct these nonpartisan talks, with the overall theme: “An Era of Political and Economic Uncertainty.” Learn more.

Speaker Series events are held the third Wednesday of every month at the New Canaan Library, starting at 6:30pm (unless otherwise noted), and are free and open to all.

The first half hour of each event offers an opportunity to mingle with fellow New Canaanites and enjoy light refreshments provided by the DTC. Talks begin at 7:00pm and run for one hour, ending with approximately 30 minutes for questions and answers.

Our goal is to bring people together on areas on common interest—we encourage you to attend and invite your friends.
