The Nebraska Humanities Council recently added 14 new programs to its Speakers’ Bureau.
Programs are available to any Nebraska nonprofit organization for a small processing fee. Mary Yager, Associate Director for the NHC, says there are about 300 programs in rotation at the Speakers’ Bureau at any given time. She says the NHC puts out a call for speakers every three to four years.
Yager says they recently expanded their programs to include subjects they haven’t had recently. New programs center on Annie Oakley, the railroad and spoken word artists.
