This list is intended to help those preparing society programmes to find speakers willing to display within the YPA area, and perhaps beyond. When contacting speakers please try to offer alternative dates. It is courteous to offer expenses, though some speakers may not require them.

Column one shows the name and contact details of the speaker. Contact details are those which speakers have agreed to have shown on the website. Where no contact details are shown the YPA Secretary will provide them to bona fide enquiries made on behalf of societies.

Speakers are asked to check the details and notify the YPA Secretary and the Webmaster of any changes. Also notify them if you want your name and display included in this listing.
