NSA will shorten your learning curve. The benefits you’ll receive by being a member are limited only by your participation in our activities and your use of the abundant resources available to members, including:
Accelerate Your Professional Speaking Career
As a member of NSA-CF, you receive a free listing in our Speaker Directory, posted online at our website. This listing includes your photo, contact information, areas of focus, primary topics and titles, publications, client lists – and much more! In addition, your listing contains links for others to e-mail you and to visit your website. Many of our members have received business and other opportunities from being listed on our website, where meeting planners, members of the press and other interested parties have located them through Internet searches.
Membership Benefit Speakers Academy
Open to both members (at a discounted cost) and non-members, our Speakers Academy offers an exciting opportunity for new speakers to “learn the ropes” much more quickly and cost-effectively than would ever be available if they tried to acquire this knowledge on their own. In addition, experienced speakers looking to change focus, add other areas of focus or just “pump up their skills and opportunities” find the Speakers Academy to be an incredibly valuable resource as well.
Part of Larger Network
In addition to receiving the benefits of local resources and support through our Central Florida Chapter, by joining NSA you also become part of a vast network of 4,000 speaking professionals who comprise the national organization.
Many more educational, networking and support opportunities abound on a national level, which you can receive through conferences, teleseminars, mastermind groups and other networking and learning opportunities.
The help you may need at any given moment is very likely just a phone call away!
