Here are some examples of local and regional WCC programs given around the US:
Symposia can feature technical talks (on a particular technical theme, leaders of the future, memorial symposia, etc) or career related talks (balancing career and family, tips for career success, etc). Audiences appreciate all types of talks. In general, luncheon and dinner speakers should stick to nontechnical talks.
If you are planning a dinner event, consider using a different venue than the host hotel. You may have to provide transportation, but local science museums or sites of interest may entertain your visitors a give them a chance to mingle before the dinner.
