Speakers Bureau

Thank you for your interest in the NWRPCA’s Speakers Bureau. NWRPCA has retired this program; however, NWRPCA is always available for speaker references and resources so please reach out for assistance. Please also refer to the Speakers Bureau Alumni page. Contact Sadie Agurkis, Interim COO, for more information.



Training Community Health Center staff is one of NWRPCA’s highest priorities. We are known for quality conferences and regional trainings. We know that not all of our member staff can travel to our trainings. To help facilitate training to all our members throughout the region, we’ve put together an annual compilation of a group of experienced subject matter experts based on the highest priority topics identified in the annual training needs survey.

Read on to learn more, and take a look at NWRPCA's Speakers Bureau FAQs for more details about this invaluable program.
