More Information About Joining

We’ve been providing free speakers to the community in Chicago since 1996. Read reviews about FreeSpeakers.org from speakers and program chairpersons on Google, Facebook and Yelp.

When ten or so new speakers join FreeSpeaker.org, we send out a “New to FreeSpeakers.org” email newsletter to all the contacts who have used our service in the past. Hopefully, this gets you started with a bang.

Here’s How it Works:

We receive speaker requests almost daily from group program chairpersons. After he or she has had a chance to review the list, the chairperson will request a topic/speaker. When you’re requested, we send an e-mail letting you know which of your topics has been selected. We provide the contact person’s name, phone number, email address and other details. At that point, we step aside.

Within three business days, you contact the person. Go over the details, the date, the directions, etc. Be sure to exchange phone numbers. Frequently, the contact person will request a written bio about you. Many of these groups publish your information in their organization’s newsletter and/or send a press release to their local newspaper.

It is a firm policy of FreeSpeakers.org that you call the group within three days. Even if you have to turn down the talk, please call within three days. You do not need to inform FreeSpeakers.org whether you accepted or declined the request.
