ACHS Call for Presenters

ACHS Call for Presenters

You've spent a lot of time building your expertise and honing your craft. Now is the time to share your knowledge and experience by volunteering to lead an in-person community wellness event at the ACHS campus and/or a remote teleseminar.

This is your opportunity to donate a little time and help support our social mission of providing accessible holistic health education on a regular basis. The purpose of these classes and teleseminars is to provide the community with high-quality holistic health and wellness information in an easy-to-use and interactive manner. Classes and seminars should engage the audience, focus on holistic health topics of the day, share your passion, and be professional and organized.

In exchange, you'll have the opportunity to meet some great people, help improve the health of our communities worldwide, practice your presentation skills, add a presentation to your resume, network, and laugh … Need we go on? It may even meet continuing education requirements for your professional organization (check directly with your organization). You are also welcome to introduce your service or product, provided it is not the focus of the presentation. Presentations must be noncommercial in nature overall.

Here's a little more about what we're looking for:

Volunteers to present anin-person Saturday community wellness class at the ACHS campus in Portland, Oregon. Presenters are free to choose a holistic health and wellness topic of interest to them, but classes should be approximately 50 minutes long. Sessions will be filmed and then edited for viewing by the public on our college YouTube channel, ACHStv. Presenters are responsible for planning their class and organizing any necessary materials and/or technology with ACHS staff.


Volunteers to present a holistic health and wellness-themed teleseminar. Speakers do not need to be in the Portland area to take advantage of this opportunity. Rather, speakers can participate remotely (they will call into ACHS) and are again free to select the specific topic of their choice. All teleseminars will be scheduled on Tuesday evenings and will run from 7-8:30 pm, PST. To participate, speakers should be available from 6:50-8:45 p.m. to allow some extra time for set-up and Q & A. Teleseminars will also be recorded and available after the session for download.

We encourage ACHS graduates and those interested in faculty positions at ACHS to volunteer, as well as existing students and faculty and other experts in the local community.

To have your community wellness class and/or Tuesday teleseminar considered, please email your resume and a brief proposal for your class, including approximate length and any set-up requirements, to An ACHS staff member will then follow up with you to find out more information about your event and/or presentation and will send you required paperwork.

Thank you for volunteering your time and expertise. You may also want to contact your professional organization to see if this opportunity meets their continuing education requirements.

We look forward to learning more about your presentation!
