Speakers Bureau deadline looms

The UVic Speakers Bureau is recruiting members for the 2000-2001 academic year.

The 20-year-old community service draws upon the expertise of volunteer speakers from among the faculty, staff, and graduate students who teach, conduct research, and study on campus. Every year Bureau members go off campus to speak to a wide range of community groups, schools, clubs and other organizations throughout Greater Victoria and lower Vancouver Island.

Membership forms have been distributed to faculty, staff and graduate advisors through campus mail and the topic deadline for inclusion in the new Speakers Bureau Guide is fast approaching. The guide is distributed to schools and community groups throughout Vancouver Island in the fall.

More than 400 speaking requests were filled with local organizations and schools last year, with a total audience of more than 12,000 people.

Members in the bureau are not expected to incur out-of-pocket expenses, and speaking engagements are booked at times mutually convenient for both speakers and host groups.

For more information or to receive a membership form for the coming year, contact Mandy Crocker, bureau co-ordinator, at 721-8587.
