Speakers Bureau

The Joint Commission Speakers Bureau offers qualified speakers on a variety of topics related to Joint Commission accreditation, performance measurement and quality improvement.

How to Schedule a Speaker

The Joint Commission will make every effort to fill speaker requests with the most qualified individual. The request may be forwarded to Joint Commission Resources® (JCR®) based on the topic and length of presentation. JCR is an affiliate of The Joint Commission.

After a speaker has been confirmed, he or she will work directly with the requester to develop a presentation targeted to the particular audience. Please do not list a speaker in promotional material until confirmation from The Joint Commission has been received.

To request a speaker, complete the following form.

How Far in Advance to Request a Speaker

For us to match the best speaker with the program, we recommend that you contact The Joint Commission as early as possible — at least 8 weeks prior to the scheduled event. Please allow 2 weeks for processing after submitting your request. Speaker confirmations will be sent between 30-45 days in advance of the event.
