Introducing BCAC's Speakers Bureau
Our latest youth outreach program is finally here—announcing BCAC's Speakers Bureau. The Youth Engagement Committee’s mission is to introduce, inspire, and mentor new-comers to the aviation industry. This initiative is our invitation to young people to come and explore our world.
As passionate aviation and aerospace enthusiasts, we want to share our love for aviation with the young people in our communities, and showcase the many amazing career paths available within our industry. The Speakers Bureau is an opportunity to connect our passionate aviation leaders with the next generation of potential aviation leaders, and plant seeds of inspiration and possibility.
If you’re established in your aviation career (or working your way up), we are looking for people who love what they do and love talking about it. The Speakers Bureau is an opportunity for you to tell your story and help spread the word about aviation through public speaking.
The application window for volunteer speakers is now open, and will close on March 1, 2021, at 23:59 PST. This year's program begins on March 29, 2021. For more information about this new initiative, please visit our Speakers Bureau webpage.
