Listing in our directory of speakers

Meeting planners and those searching for a local speaker often search our directory to find the right speaker. NSA-KC members have the benefit of being listed in our local directory that links directly to your NSA eSpeaker profile.


NSA-KC members naturally help other members. Cavett Robert, the founder of NSA, strongly encouraged members to help each other.  In the "Spirit of Cavett," referrals, advice on running your business, connections, partnering, mentoring and brainstorming take place between members in our own unique NSA-KC family.  One of the most valuable benefits of NSA-KC membership is being surrounded by a group of people who want to help you succeed.

Chapter involvement

NSA-KC members are expected to participate, at some level, in the chapter programs. Since NSA-KC is a volunteer organization, active participation from members helps grow the chapter and develops depth for a successful and sustainable organization. Knowing that we are all professional speakers and frequently on the road, we strive to have "short-term tasks" so people can contribute easily and effortlessly.

Many NSA-KC members say their most rewarding experiences come from the camaraderie and synergy that happens when volunteering to work on NSA-KC projects. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Program planning and coordination
  • Mentoring
  • Networking
  • Membership and hospitality
  • New member orientation
  • Outreach to potential members
  • Social media
  • Marketing and publicity
  • Finance, fundraising
