League members willing to volunteer in our statewide Speakers Bureau are in great demand! Using skills perfected in their professional lives or attained through experience and training, speakers are provided with League material and presentation guidelines.
League Speakers Bureau members have presented at hundreds of engagements with organizations including Tiger Bay Clubs, local colleges and universities, Chambers of Commerce, Kiwanis Clubs, Rotary Clubs, and numerous community and residential groups. With audiences of 20 to 200 or more, our nonpartisan speakers educate citizens on state and local issues, including ballot amendments, legislative session updates, health care, Florida tax policy and TABOR, redistricting, elections law, and local government topics of interest. In the fall of 2011, the League began a federal health care reform seminar series throughout the state.
Currently, the League has materials available and presenters prepared to speak on the 2012 Constitutional Amendments; HB 1355, the voter-suppression elections law passed during the 2011 legislative session; and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the federal health care reform law passed in 2010.
If you know an organization that could benefit from one of our speaking engagements OR if you are a League member who would like to volunteer for the Speakers Bureau, please contact us.
