FEES & COSTS

How much does it cost to book a presenter?

We normally expect those requesting our services to meet the speaker’s travel and accommodation costs. These arrangements will be agreed upon between you and DCRCC, directly.

T&TA fees can depend on a number of different factors, including: the type of organization and nature of an event (for-profit vs. not-for-profit), how far a speaker has to travel, length and number of presentations, preparation required, and demand for a speaker’s services. Negotiation of cost will be determined once a request is made.

What does DCRCC expect from you?

  • T&TA should be requested using the request form. Please do not make multiple approaches to different people at DCRCC, as this can cause confusion and duplication of effort.
  • Please try to give as much notice as possible when you require a training. Two to three months advance notice is ideal.
  • Please give us as much information as possible about your request, including the purpose of the training, frequency, date, time and audience numbers.
  • Please ask for permission to publish presentations on your website or in a conference or other program. The material may be copyrighted.
  • Please copy ttarequests@dcrcc.org on any correspondence you have with the presenter prior to or after your event.
