Page history last edited by Thaddeus 11 years, 10 months ago

Professional organizations are a great way to learn new skills, network with others in the industry, and find great speaking opportunities.

There are several major professional organizations for speakers.




The National Speakers Association (NSA) is the leading organization for experts who speak professionally. NSA's 4,000 members include experts in a variety of industries and disciplines, who reach audiences as trainers, educators, humorists, motivators, consultants, authors and more. Since 1973, NSA has provided resources and education designed to advance the skills, integrity and value of its members and speaking profession. Visit NSA's Web site at www.nsaspeaker.org
