Topics & Submission Form

The purpose of our Speakers’ Bureau is to increase public understanding of city operations while reinforcing Glendale’s emphasis on transparency and open communication. We also want to make experienced city officials available to the community and enable them the opportunity to convey their expertise on a variety of topics. Additionally, it’s our hope these public speaking events not only edify residents but also spur volunteer interest and increase community participation in city programs/ initiatives.

The City of Glendale Speakers’ Bureau program is coordinated by the City Public Information Office. Employees are encouraged to contact the Public Information Office with suggestions for new topics to be added to the program.

Below are potential Speakers' Bureau topics. If you wish to request a speaker for an event, please fill out the Submission Form below in its entirety and we'll be in touch.
