In visiting this week with Tim McManus at the Partnership for Public Service, he told us about the success their having with a particular group of feds who are donating their time to talk to college audiences about what opportunities and rewards they might find in working for the government.

The Annenberg Speakers Bureau has received more than 70 requests for this fall semester (up from 28 last fall) for speakers to visit a diverse range of places ranging from community colleges to Ivy league universities.

We had talked about the Speakers Bureau with Vice President for education and outreach at PPS Tim McManus before, but he says they've got some real exciting news about the Bureau this year
