Speakers Bureau
Share |

The IRC Speakers Bureau is a collection of IRC members willing to share their expertise and experiences with the Greater Kansas City area. The members of the Bureau don’t charge a fee for their speaking time and are available to the Greater Kansas City area (but it is ultimately their decision where to travel).
