Speaking Request Form

Thank you for your interest in having President Kathleen McCartney attend your event. Please submit this form at least four weeks in advance of your event date. The president’s office will review the information with the president and notify you within a reasonable time whether she will be able to attend and the terms of her participation. Online submission of the completed form is required before any dates will be held on the calendar.

Due to the large number of requests we receive and the complexity of the president’s calendar, not all requests can be accommodated. If you have questions about the form, please contact the president’s office at 413-525-2100.

The times requested for the president's participation should be as exact as possible, as she is often committed to multiple events in a series. If the event schedule should change, it is your responsibility to contact the president’s pffice immediately to determine if the change can be accommodated.

Please Note

In addition to the above information, the following information should be provided:

  • If the president’s name is noted on invitation or material for an event, drafts must be submitted to the president’s office for review and approval prior to printing.
  • Order of program and list of attendees due three business days prior to event.
