Speaker’s Bureau

The Speakers Bureau is a volunteer organization made up of civil servants, contractors, and retirees who represent NASA as speakers. They address civic, professional, educational, and other non-profit organizations.

In addition to responding to the local community, Langley supports a five-state area, comprised of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky.

Speakers are provided, when available, at no cost. They may not accept outside compensation or honoraria, but travel costs for speaking engagements requiring out-of-town travel (over 50 miles) and/or overnight accommodations are usually borne by the requesting organization.

NASA speakers do not participate in events of a political or commercial nature or where any group has been unlawfully secluded or segregated on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.


To tell our most important customer, the American taxpayer, what we do in support of the American way of life.


The Speakers Bureau is the Center’s link with organizations and other groups who want to learn more about the work done here in Hampton, Virginia, at NASA Langley Research Center. Personnel who do the work share their projects and enthusiasm with others.
