For speaking engagements we require a speaker's fee and outside of the Broward County, FL area, travel expenses.
Lodging, or lodging expenses, may be required if the location is more than a 3 hour drive from Broward County.
If John is supplying the "raffle plants", please remember that the plants are not cheap $5 plants, and the number of plants the society gets "donated" will be dependent upon the total amount that the society is willing to reimburse for the plants.
The society also agrees to not supply "extra plants" for raffle or sale during any lecture as this may interfere with the lecturer's sales.
If John is at some point unable to provide "raffle plants", it will be discussed prior to the event.

John is also able to customize other orchid lectures for societies, if interested in any type of orchid related lecture that is not listed, please give us a call.
