NASA's Kennedy 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 Kennedy’s space flight programs.

To request a speaker, the speakers bureau must receive a request, preferably the online Speakers Request Form below. Please submit your request six to eight weeks in advance of the 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. We also reserve the right to evaluate the incoming request to determine whether the event meets our criteria.
When available, 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, however, usually are borne by the requesting organization.
