Why Schedule a speaker?

The Purpose

The purpose of the Missouri Speakers Bureau is to promote humanities education throughout the state of Missouri. If your civic organization, museum, historical society, library, nonprofit, or similar institution or group is looking for an expert to give a presentation on a topic related to the history, culture, geography, and/or people of Missouri, we hope you will consider what this program has to offer. For questions about the Missouri Speakers Program, please contact our Program Coordinator Nick Lopez at nick@mohumanities.org.
