Speaker Request Form

The NEFI only accepts Speaker Request Forms from individuals who have Organizational Authority to enter into an agreement with the NEFI.

Thank you for your interest in having a NEFI speaker at your event. In order to help facilitate your request, please complete this online form at least 30 days prior to the event and allow 5-10 business days for decisions to be made. NEFI is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit and is only able to provide this service as a result of generous donations received from our donors. If you have not received a response within 10 days of your request, you should assume that we are unable to meet your request due to a lack of funding and/or the availability of our speakers.
