Speaker's Bureau and Directory
Speaker's Bureau Directory, updated 1 January 2017 (PDF)
The Speakers Bureau Directory features the names of speakers historically solicited for past Council Speakers Bureau Directories, as well as from member and non-member societies of the Council. Pertinent information regarding their expertise, credentials, lecture topics, and fees is included. The stand alone Directory will be updated approximately every six (6) months (early May and early November of each year) and supports information categories which are intended to facilitate the Society Program Chairmen in finding a qualified lecturer. Those items left blank were not addressed by the speaker.
Each lecture should be negotiated between a speaker and the interested society. Contracts by either the speaker or the society may be executed, and adequate communication between a speaker and a society is essential.
It is recommended that the following general guidelines be considered:
- Societies should contact speakers well in advance of desired presentation.
- Arrangements for A/V equipment required by speaker should be made.
- In a timely manner, societies should solicit handouts from speaker and make copies for distribution to the membership.
- When a fee is required, society should compensate speakers on the day of their presentation.
