Do you need a speaker for your church, civic group or garden club? We have the speakers you are looking for on just about any topic. The Johnson County Extension Speakers' Bureau is a great resource for your club or group.

If you are looking for an in-person or virtual presentation by a university trained professional, please contact us. Here is a sample of the some education topics: 

  • Basic budgeting
  • Basic organizational skills
  • Birds
  • Bluegreen Algae
  • Clutter busting
  • Emerald Ash Borer and Ash trees
  • Environmental Issues
  • Food safety and nutrition
  • Healthy tips in the kitchen
  • Home insect control
  • Lawn care
  • Nuisance wildlife control
  • Perennial flower gardening
  • Pruning
  • Pollinators, Bugs, Butterflies
  • Sleep: want it, need it, how to get it
  • Small business and community development
  • Waterways

We can adapt our presentations to meet your group’s needs; from a short 20-minute presentation to a longer format, if needed. While there are no fees for a volunteer speaker, a donation to Johnson County Extension or the chosen volunteer organization is appreciated.

To schedule a speaker for your group, please contact the office. For more information on this service, call (913) 715-7000.
