Become a Guest Speaker for TAPS

What does it mean to be a guest speaker?

Being on the speaker list means that TAPS will include your contact information in the facilitator training manual so that group facilitators may contact you to request you come speak on a topic during their group.

What are my responsibilities as a TAPS Guest Speaker?

Guest Speakers agree to:

  1. Provide accurate and up to date contact information to TAPS. If contact information changes - including but not limited to physical address, phone number, email address, or availability – guest speakers bear full responsibility for updating their form submission. Inaccurate contact information will result in your removal from the Guest Speakers list.

  2. Select topics only related to your area of expertise. If you are unclear about a topic, please request more information from TAPS staff via email –

  3. Communicate with group leaders regarding availability and scheduling the presentation. Group leaders will use contact information made available through the submission form to request a speaker at least two weeks in advance of the proposed group meeting. As volunteers, speakers are always welcome to decline an invitation.

  4. Present information related only to the topic requested.

  5. Refrain from selling services during the presentation. Attempts to sell services or products during the presentation will result in removal from the guest speaker list. Speakers may leave business cards and contact information along with discount offer codes with the group leader to distribute if requested.

TAPS groups meet during the week, on the weekends, mornings, and afternoons - so there are a variety of opportunities for presenting.
