Request a speaker
Volunteers are available to present information about the Commission on Aging and the various projects underway in a 30 minute presentation or less (plus question and answer).
If you are interested in scheduling a presentation or having a Commission on Aging member participate in an upcoming tabling event, please contact commission staff at (360) 397-2280 ext. 4913 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- For events greater than 50 miles of Vancouver, please submit your request at least six weeks prior to the event.
- For events within fifty miles of Vancouver, please submit your request at least thirty days prior to the event.
- Provide details about your event location, date, time and an audience overview, including an estimated number of participants
