Representative/Speaker's Bureau

Description: Represent and promote the Chapter at events, such as health fairs and Employee Giving drives in companies. Representatives distribute information, brochures and occasionally may give a short 3-5 minute talk about our work. Representatives will need access to a car and be willing and able to navigate local areas.

Weekday Opportunities: Companies typically conduct Employee Giving Drives in the fall, during working hours, so demand here is seasonal. However, as awareness of the disease increases, there may be additional need for speakers to present at church meetings, social clubs, schools, etc.
