Most speakers are paid a small fee for their efforts and SC History Speaks helps collect, manage, and disburse those fees.
Here's how it works:
SC History Speaks collects a 20% fee from the presentation fee and after the event, SC History Speaks will pay you your portion of the speaking fee. Without commission, you will also receive your mileage reimbursement and your meal allowance if applicable. (If a meal is provided or is not necessary, there should be no meal allowance.) A 20% commission is considered low in the speaking business and is used to allow SC History Speaks to be self-sustaining.
After your program, your booking organization will be requested to complete an evaluation of your performance which will be detailed on your directory listing so prospective booking organizations can benefit from prior bookings.
