Thank you to our community organizations

For 41 years, UVic Speakers Bureau volunteers have given talks to community organizations, government and schools throughout southern Vancouver Island.

Even with a partial return to in-person talks this year, our speakers gave more than 340 presentations and reached approximately 10,000 people this year.

We thank each of the 124 organizations who took part and look ahead to a new season in 2022-23.
