Speakers Bureau FAQs
Who can request speakers?
Professional, community, and civic organizations are welcome to request a speaker.
How much lead time is needed to book a speaker?
You should submit your request at least three weeks in advance of the event date. The Office of Public Affairs will contact you when your request is processed. If a speaker is available to address your group, you will be put directly in touch with that person to make final arrangements.

Are there any costs involved?
