TMN Speakers Bureau

Our Chapter offers speakers for non-political events and meetings as part of our education and outreach mission.  Most presentations are approximately one hour, but many can be adjusted as needed.  For in-person presentations, the Chapter is able to provide a projector and computer if you do not have one, but the facility must provide a surface upon which the presentation can be projected and power for the projector.  The facility must also provide any microphone and amplification system if one is required.

Presentations available include:
