Obtaining faculty speakers is difficult. Begin planning three to five months in advance. Then take these next steps:

Step 1: Identify topics of interest and use the faculty directory, Berkeley Haas Alumni Newsletter, and the BerkeleyHaas magazine to identify faculty with relevant expertise.

Tip! Consider PhD alumni teaching at universities or institutions in your region.

Step 2: Contact, Associate Director of Alumni Communities, Hazel Zambrano (hzambrano@haas.berkeley.edu) to make an introduction and ask on the chapter’s behalf. She can also assist with brainstorming faculty, or alumni speakers for the chapter.

Step 3: Once confirmed, the chapter must serve as a point of contact, assuring that visiting professors are fully informed of all event details and have a great experience before, during, and after the event.
