|Military volunteers needed for Speakers Bureau [ back to top ]|
The Fort McCoy Public Affairs Office (PAO) is looking for Soldiers
interested in supporting requests for speakers at events such as
Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs.
The PAO receives many such requests from community organizations and area schools. These speaking engagements help to tell the Army story and foster goodwill within the communities.
Due to a number of installation Soldiers recently retiring or changing duty stations, the number of personnel available to support these requests has declined.
Soldiers of all ranks are welcome to register for the program. Registration provides the PAO with a list of speakers who can be contacted to determine their availability for a request.
No commitment will be made without prior approval from a Soldier.
Speeches issued by the Department of Army are available to speakers for holidays such as Memorial Day.
Participation in the Speakers Bureau is voluntary.
Speaking requests cannot interfere with workload/mission commitment, and supervisory approval is required for events occurring during duty hours.
For more information or to register, contact the PAO at 608-388-2407 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
