Club President and Agora Ambassador Santiago Becerra and the members of the Agora Speakers Madrid club in Spain. There are five types of clubs in Agora Speakers, depending basically on the number of restrictions they place on their membership and how closely they adhere to the Agora Educational Program. Public Clubs are the most popular and least restrictive type of club and the type we strongly encourage club founders to consider. Additionally, Public Clubs do not pay any fees to Agora Speakers International. Reference Clubs are a special kind of public club that is recognized to work exceptionally well and strongly adheres to the Agora Educational Model. They are clubs to be used as a model for imitation, as a reference of how a good club should work. Youth Clubs are another special type of public club that is specially geared towards children. They follow a simplified set of roles, officers, and an adapted educational program. Usually, they have an age limitation ranging from 6 to 14 years, although that's up to each club. External Affiliate Clubs are clubs that belong to another organization (usually a nonprofit) and act as public Agora clubs. Restricted Clubs are clubs that have special requirements for membership, usually professional or in terms of experience. Public Interest Clubs (PIC) are clubs that have restrictions in terms of membership but serve the public interest and, as such, are exempt from any fees. The Foundation grants the Public Interest Club status on a case-by-case basis. Corporate Clubs are clubs that are embedded within an organization and are restricted to employees of that organization only. All clubs in Agora Speakers are equally important, and all club members enjoy the same rights regardless of the type of club in which they participate.
