THE RESORT AT GLADE SPRINGS

Teachers Resource Directory of Available Speakers

The Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce Education Committee has formed a group of member representatives (Speakers Bureau) interested in speaking to Raleigh County students by invitation from teachers on specific careers and topics related to their business or interests.

BRCCC maintains this contact list of speakers that will be made available to Raleigh County teachers so that they can contact speakers directly when they have a need for an outside, “real life” presentation on a subject being discussed in the classroom.

This list also includes a “Judges” section of interested representatives available to be Judges at school events, presentations and contests.
