Additional Policies for Limited Audience Programs

  1. Each organization and/or target audience is limited to two Speakers Bureau programs or events per calendar year.
  2. Applications for Speakers Bureau programs must be received by HN no more than one year and no less than 30 days before the program date.
  3. The organization is responsible for paying a $50 processing fee ($100 for the second program in a calendar year) plus 50% of the speaker expenses (honorarium and travel, which is determined by HN). The processing fee is $75 for the following high-use speakers: Jeff Barnes, Cherrie Beam-Clarke, Darrell Draper, Charlotte Endorf, Sue McLain, and Joan Wells. The processing fee must accompany the application form. Applications will NOT be processed without this fee. For high-use speakers, the second program in a year costs $100 processing fee plus 50% of the speaker’s expense.
  4. Public institutions such as prisons, state hospitals, veterans homes and youth treatment centers pay only the $50 processing fee ($100 for the second program in a calendar year). The processing fee is $75 for the following high-use speakers: Jeff Barnes, Cherrie Beam-Clarke, Darrell Draper, Charlotte Endorf, Sue McLain, and Jeff Barnes. The 50% match is waived.
  5. Although the organization is not required to promote the program or open the program to the public, any publicity about the program must acknowledge HN funding. As noted in the universal policies, the HN poster must be displayed at the program site and must be clearly visible. HN support of the Speakers Bureau program must be acknowledged at the beginning of the program.
  6. The organization may not charge for the HN Speakers Bureau program, but may charge for meals at the program.
  7. The organization must pay the speaker on the day of the program after the program has concluded. You should receive a check made out to the speaker about one week before your program. HN processes and mails checks on the 15th and 30th of each month.
  8. Failure to comply with HN Speakers Bureau policies can result in the organization not receiving future funding from HN.
