Speakers Bureau

The Office on Aging provides a network of professionals and knowledgeable volunteers who are trained and available to speak at no charge to any community group. The mission of the Speakers Bureau Network is to educate and empower individuals to enhance the quality of life for older adults. The Speakers Bureau Network has speakers who are prepared to shed some light on various topics and to give some tips on aging successfully -- and perhaps to share a smile about the inevitabilities of advancing years. Some of the common topics that members of the Speakers Bureau network can speak about are listed below.
