City of Delray Beach Speakers Bureau
We would like to expand our outreach to the community to provide all our residents with the most current and correct information regarding City affairs and the many projects that are in progress around Delray Beach. With that in mind, we have organized a Speakers Bureau to speak or make a presentation to your organization. Below is a list of City department heads and staff professionals who are available to give a talk and answer questions about their specialty.
If you would like to invite one or more of our staff to speak to your group, we ask that you follow these procedures:
Select a first choice, second choice, and third choice from the accompanying list. Please give us at least one month's (20 business days) notice prior to your meeting. Provide us with the phone number, cell number, e-mail address, and street address of your association, along with a contact person. Include the date, time and location of the meeting. The City will contact you soon after receiving your request to let you know if your selected speaker is available on the date you indicated. If so, we will get directions to your meeting site at that time.
To make a request, call (561) 243-7190 during business hours weekdays.
We look forward to hearing from you!
