The Directory of Speakers may be found below. To assist you with club activities, we also have a list of nearby parks, gardens and historic locations that might be of interest your club to visit as a group. Click here for that list by area.
Of special note during these times of virtual presentations, remember that clubs must get permission from speakers in writing to record their presentations.
The Speakers list is in alphabetic order by last name or company name. But you have the ability to search – by speaker name, topic (e.g., birds, herbs, organic) and for virtual presentations (just type the word “virtual” in the search field). First, click on START NEW SEARCH, then type the search criteria into search field on the left and use the ENTER key to begin the search.
Don’t forget to click on “More Information” for each speaker to see details, such as type of presentation and speaker qualifications. It is recommended that you contact speakers about additional topics and to determine if there are any expenses in addition to the fee listed.
A contract with your speaker is recommended. Click here for a Sample Contract.

To make this Directory even more valuable to clubs, please always evaluate/review speakers as soon as possible after you’ve heard their presentation. There are two easy ways to do this. To send a review immediately, click on “More Information” for that speaker and complete and submit the form you find there. If you prefer to mail the form or to suggest a speaker to add to our directory, complete this Speaker Evaluation Form, print and mail. Reviews should include positive comments and areas of concern. They will be posted in summary upon review of the Program Chair.
