Join Speakers Bureau
Okanagan College is compiling information for a Speakers Bureau, which will be available to the public via the Public Affairs website. This list will be useful both internally and externally for identifying experts and those with specific knowledge or insights in a variety of disciplines and subjects. The Speakers Bureau list will be distributed to service clubs and media outlets and will be made available via the web as well. Staff interested in being a part of the Bureau are asked to email Tyler Finley, Associate Director of Public Affairs, and send any additional information that may be pertinent. Members of the media and community groups may contact those on the list to inquire about their ability to speak on their area of expertise. If you have a question about the Okanagan College Speakers Bureau, contact Tyler Finley.
