NOVA Experts

NOVA experts are eager to share their knowledge with members of your organization.

NOVA offers an educational service to members of our community such as:

  • civic associations
  • business and professional societies
  • schools and clubs
  • government organizations
  • religious groups
  • other community gatherings

Our experts have either a personal or professional interest in the field they represent and welcome the opportunity to share new ideas at your next meeting or event.


Would you like to invite one of NOVA’s experts to speak to your group?
Please email lwade@nvcc.edu and include the following information:

  • Requestor information: name, daytime phone, email address
  • The subject of your request (NOTE: Please be specific. We do not have general topic speakers available; we identify speakers by subject matter.)
  • Type of group (school, political organization, church, synagogue, retirement community, etc.)
  • Location of the meeting 
  • Date/time of the event (if the date is flexible, provide multiple possible dates)
  • How long would you like the speaker to present?
  • How many attendees are expected?
  • Will there be a Q&A period?

Once we receive your completed request, we will contact potential speakers. After a speaker has been identified, a PIO from our department will introduce the speaker to you and allow him/her to work out specific details with you.

*NOTE: NOVA cannot guarantee that we can provide a speaker on a given date or on a given topic.
