The Speakers program will no longer accept applications from membership organizations.
Eligible organizations must be oriented to the general, out-of-school adult public and cannot require a membership fee.
IN-PERSON Speakers events are currently postponed due to concerns around Coronavirus and COVID-19. No new applications for in-person Speakers events will be approved at this time. Your organization may instead wish to explore conducting a Speakers event remotely via Zoom. If so, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

We have a diverse collection of speakers with a wide range of presentation styles and topics. To see a full list of our current speakers, click here.
A fee of $50 must accompany the request for a HI speaker. HI will fully fund the speaker’s honorarium. If the speaker must stay overnight, the sponsoring organization must negotiate that expense with the speaker.
You can mail a check or pay online . Online payments are through Network for Good, which is also used for donations. If applying through the online application, please include a copy of your email receipt.
The local program coordinator will be asked to complete a one-page evaluation of the presentation, coordinate all arrangements with the speaker, and publicize the event locally. A suggested flier template is available upon request. That is it!
