Speakers Bureau

The Sister Cities Association of Sarasota has developed a Speakers Bureau from which we are offering a variety of presentations to your Alumni Club for luncheons, organizational meetings, social events, etc. The list of presentations shown below are from members of our Board of Directors and display the range of interests we are prepared to convey to your group. Also attached is a list of a brief biographies of our speakers. 
An honorarium to our organization for the presentation would be greatly appreciated and would foster our objective to develop respect, understanding and cooperation through citizen diplomacy with our eight sister cities. Additional information about our organization is available on our website at:

If you have an event that you would like one of our members to give a presentation, please contact me directly by e-mail. We would pleased present one our our interesting topics and get to know the members of your club.

Best Regards,
