What is Speakers Bureau?
The Alzheimer's Association offers a variety of ongoing educational programs targeted to specific audiences—the general public, individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their families, healthcare and social services professionals—as well as customized speaking engagements.
Speakers Bureau volunteers are trained to help educate the community by delivering chapter-developed presentations about Alzheimer's disease and sharing information about Chapter services.
The Alzheimer’s Association will train volunteers on the core programs, but we are always seeking specialty topics. Training is required.
Who participates in Speakers Bureau?
Speakers Bureau is open to anyone who is passionate about the subject, an effective communicator, and interested in educating the public about Alzheimer's disease. Members of the Speakers Bureau typically have family and/or professional experience with dementia. Professionals in the field of elder care are an especially strong match, as well as family members who have experienced the changes of Alzheimer's disease firsthand.
