Request a Speaker
Johnson Space Center Speakers Bureau
NASA's Johnson Space Center Speakers Bureau comprises engineers, scientists, managers and other professionals who represent the center and agency at civic, professional, educational and other public events. Each member of the speakers bureau is exceptionally qualified to discuss general and specific aspects of the activities, programs and related technology pertaining to Johnson Space Center programs. To request a speaker, the speakers bureau must receive a request on the online Speakers Request Form below. Please submit your request six to eight weeks in advance of a domestic event and two to three months in advance of an international event. Since the speakers bureau is a volunteer program, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be filled. While we are unable to maintain a list of speakers who would be available on any given date, every effort is made to provide an appropriate speaker for each request.
Speakers are provided at no cost. They may not accept outside compensation or honorariums. Travel costs for speaking engagements requiring out-of-town travel and/or overnight accommodations, are borne by the requesting organization.
How to request a speaker from Johnson Space Center
Johnson Space Center primarily serves the states of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas. Other states and countries may be served when other NASA centers are unable to satisfy requester needs.
