Distinguished Lecturer Program

Request a Distinguished Lecture for your event by completing the DL Request Form.

CEDA DL Request Form

  • DL requests are reviewed by the CEDA DL Committee.
  • Please return your completed form to Mehdi Tahoori, CEDA's DL Program Manager. 
  • Request early, and be flexible with your dates. Our lecturers are much sought after, and they travel frequently, so they usually appreciate the opportunity to combine a Distinguished Lecture with other travel. This works best if sufficient lead-time is given.
