Administrative history

The UBC Alumni Association established the UBC Speakers Bureau in 1975. Its purpose was to arrange speaking engagements by University faculty to non-profit organizations on a wide variety of topics. Organizations could contact the Speakers Bureau and inform them of their preferred date, time, and subject. In turn, the Bureau would contact faculty members who had indicated their willingness to participate in the program and whose area of expertise included the topic in question. The Bureau ceased operations in 1987; however, Community Relations established a new Speakers Bureau in September 1988.

Custodial history

After the Alumni Association closed the Speakers Bureau, some records were transferred to Community Relations, and they arrived at the University Archives with other materials from that office; no records had been added in the meantime. In April 1995, the Archives removed the Speakers Bureau records from those of Community Relations, before arranging and describing them. The Alumni Association retained the remainder of the records until 1995 when they were transferred to the Archives together with other Association records
