How Speaker Requests are Evaluated
Speaking requests that will require travel from the NCUA headquarters in Alexandria must be submitted a minimum of 90 days in advance for consideration. Internal and external speaking requests that are received less than 4 weeks out from the event date are less likely to be approved.
The NCUA Blackout Periods
Please note that, generally, NCUA staff members do not speak publicly during the week of an NCUA Board Meeting, which typically take place the third Thursday of the month, excluding the month of August. This time is referred to as the NCUA blackout period.
