Speakers Bureau

To increase public awareness of the Navy and to improve community relations, Navy personnel are available to speak at certain public or private events. Organizations seeking a Navy representative to speak at an event need to fill out a DD 2536 request form and fax or email it to our office.

The information provided will be used to evaluate the event for appropriateness and compliance with Department of Defense policies and explicit Department of Defense policy.

Requests should be made 45 days prior to the event to allow us sufficient time to find a volunteer to fulfill the request.
