This handbook, which is one in a series of handbooks designed to help tech prep practitioners replicate successful materials/projects/programs developed by Partnership for Academic and Career Education (PACE) consortium members, explains how to develop a guide to area business speakers. Background information on the PACE consortium is presented. Discussed next are the purpose and content of the PACE "Guide to Area Business Speakers," which includes a compilation of PACE area business and industry representatives willing to participate in tech prep program-related activities and tips for teachers, counselors, and speakers. Presented next is information on the following topics: the role of speakers' guides in advancing tech prep initiatives, types of information and individuals to include in a speakers' guide, steps in contacting prospects, and use of speakers' guides by teachers and counselors. A suggested timeline for developing a speakers' guide is included. Appendixes constituting approximately 60% of this document include the following: excerpts from the PACE guide; sample data sheet, speaker reminder card, and dissemination letter; and initial mailing sent to potential PACE speakers (including topic suggestions and background information on tech prep and on the PACE consortium's tech prep program).
