Speaker's Bureau

About the Speaker's Bureau

To provide the services in the City of Paducah, it demands research and development, strategic planning, innovative partnerships, and advanced technology.  Paducah works hard to serve our customer’s needs in addition to ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life of citizens and increase economic development opportunities.

The City of Paducah wants to learn more about the community and provide an opportunity for citizens to be educated about the City’s wide range of programs, plans, projects, and services.  That’s the reason behind a Speaker’s Bureau.  It’s a free service created for citizens to receive information, get involved, and ask questions.  City of Paducah employees are willing to share their knowledge, programs, and services with Paducah’s church, civic, community, and professional organizations.  Groups may include homeowners’ associations, neighborhood associations, garden clubs, school clubs, senior groups, or any group who wants to be involved.
