Watch this short video by Heather Christie.
The Florida Speakers Association is a chapter of the National Speakers Association (NSA). Our members include a diverse group of individuals who speak to influence: best-selling authors, international experts, consultants, humorists, trainers, coaches and business professionals. We consist of full- and part-time speakers, speaker bureaus, and those providing services to speakers. Our mission: Build skills. Expand networks. Create successes.
There are two main categories of Professional Membership: Professional Member and Professional Affiliate.
Although not considered a “member,” we welcome those actively working toward professional membership. These individuals are referred to as Association Candidates.
