Speaker’s Bureau

The Hanford Communities work with civic organizations, professional societies, schools and colleges, and communities to arrange for speakers from the Washington State Department of Ecology's Nuclear Waste Program, the Department of Energy (DOE) and DOE contractors.

Understanding Hanford requires more knowledge than newspaper headlines about leaking radioactive waste tanks or workers overcome by vapors. The speakers share information about the current progress, challenges of the nuclear cleanup efforts, and how the cleanup will affect the region.

Speakers address groups in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and places beyond. In the last three years, the effort has arranged speaking engagements for nearly 100 organizations including Rotary, Kiwanis, and Lions Clubs; community colleges and universities; classrooms from elementary to high school; and professional associations such as the chapters of the American Chemistry Society and National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.

If you are interested in having a speaker address your organization, please call (509) 942-7348 for more details.
