Speaker Event Support
What is the Speakers Bureau?
The Bureau is made up of Secular Movement personalities who have graciously offered to speak, debate, or perform with discounted (or waived) honorariums for SSA groups.
The Bureau is reserved only to current SSA groups and we will do our best to get you a speaker to meet your needs. We offer funding assistance and many of our speakers are very negotiable on their honorarium.
The Speaker Event Guide (below) is a fantastic guide for any speaker event, including a Speakers Bureau event. We encourage you to use it whenever your group is hosting a speaker to help your event be as successful as possible. It covers anything speaker-related, such as one-off speaker events, SSA speaker tours, larger events, and more!
