Speaker’s Bureau

The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore’s Speaker’s Bureau is a free community service that provides speakers for civic organizations, business, schools, and professional groups.  Our speakers are qualified to cover a wide range of community foundation topics.

How It Works

  1. As the program director responsible for securing groups for your group, simply select from our experts or request a specific subject of interest.
  2. Next, email Anne Schoolcraft, Marketing and Community Relations Officer, or call us at 410-742-9911.
  3. The Marketing and Community Relations Officer will match your organization’s meeting date, time, topic to one of our leading authorities on the subject you select.
  4. We contact the speaker, confirm details, and send you a confirmation notice.  There is no cost to your organization.
