Speakers Bureau
The Vermont Rail Action Network Speakers Bureau is composed of advocates and railroaders who can tell the story of how railroads touch the lives of your group.  We give dozens of presentations each year at civic, professional, educational and other public venues.  Your group will learn and be entertained.

The Vermont Rail Action Network speakers bureau is a part of our public outreach and education. Our audiences include chambers and rotaries, pre-school to college classes, libraries and museums, scouts, professional and technical organizations, and community groups.

Exciting topics and dynamic presentations will inspire and educate your group. Topics include:
