Speakers Bureau

AUG 18 SB Catalog copy

New Hometown Teams topics and presentations now available!

KHC’s new Humanities catalog showcases both traditional and innovative lectures and civic engagement opportunities available free to Kansas nonprofits, as funding allows. These Speakers Bureau topics are broad in spirit with more diverse themes, ideas, and approaches that look toward the future while we also respect and learn about the past.

Additional funding for the Speakers Bureau was provided by the Lewis H. Humphreys Charitable Trust, Bank of America, Trustee.

Hometown Teams Speakers Bureau events are supported by generous gifts from the Johnson County College Foundation and the Rotary Club of Shawnee Mission to honor the memory of Fred Krebs, a lifelong advocate of the Humanities.

How To Bring a KHC Speaker to Your Event

  1. Review the Humanities catalog and select a speaker and topic.
  2. Contact the speaker and confirm time, date, and location.
  3. Immediately apply for a Community Resources Grant to bring the speaker to your community. Find out how. (Please note: Completed applications, including the DUNS number, must be submitted six weeks before the event date to be considered for funding. KHC is not able to fund applications that do not meet this requirement.)
  4. Publicize your event. Download a press release, speaker bio, and KHC logo poster.
  5. Tell us how it went. After the event, download and fill out a Speakers Bureau Evaluation and Cost Share Form and email them to Leslie Von Holten.
