Speakers Bureau Opportunities!

programsThe BIA-MA Speakers Bureau is a group of individuals that participate in spreading awareness to the public in hope of educating others about brain injury. The members of the Speakers Bureau includes survivors, family members, caregivers, or anyone affected by brain injury.

Within the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA), there are several opportunities to become involved! Get involved in the prevention efforts by becoming a member of our Speakers Bureau and share your experience.

We also encourage anyone who has been affected by brain injury to join us in spreading awareness. Individuals affected by brain injury are an integral and invaluable part of brain injury awareness, prevention, and education.

Speakers Bureau Members may be asked to speak at one of the following engagements:
