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.

Important Note: If a speaker is confirmed for your meeting, we expect your organization and the meeting venue to comply with the CDC’s COVID-19 community level recommendations for the county within which the event will occur. If warranted by the pandemic, The Joint Commission reserves the right to protect the health of its workers by changing the presentation to a remote video platform.

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 eight 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.
