Speakers Bureau


In March, IHC suspended all public programming, including the Speakers Bureau, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  While Idaho re-opens, we are still faced with many unknowns and in an abundance of caution, the IHC Executive Committee voted in May to pause the Speakers Bureau program for the time being. We are no longer accepting applications at this time and we have added a notice to our login page so that sponsors are aware of this.  All current ACTIVE speakers bureau presentations will be honored as long as the speakers and the sponsors are still comfortable continuing with their presentations.

On another note, the IHC Board of Directors developed a Program Evaluation Task Force last fall. The purpose of this committee is to evaluate each IHC program.  That work continues and we will be in touch with some revisions to the speakers bureau program later this year.









The IHC Speakers Bureau has been suspended until further notice.


The IHC Speakers Bureau has been providing quality speakers to Idaho since 1990 as part of the Idaho Humanities Council's commitment to further public education and civil discourse.

IHC speakers are an outstanding group of scholars who are available and willing to travel throughout the state of Idaho for luncheons, dinners, meetings, and special events.  Speakers' topics are humanities related and cover a broad spectrum of interests.
