This is a list of ideas and suggestions for meetings. Various sources have contributed over the years. This list includes both topics (subject matter) as well as techniques (how to go about having the meetings).

There is MeetingSpeakers page that lists people who are willing to give presentations on specific things.

This list is by no means exhaustive! If you have an idea, add it! If you have a prepared presentation, attach them to your new topic.
