Masterminds In Motion (Walk and Talk)

Hello fellow NSA DC members! How would you like to stretch your legs after a meeting, get some fresh air, and get to know other NSA DC members? One of the benefits of our new meeting space at the Bolger Center is it's proximity to some lovely walking trails. At our September 10 meeting, please join me and other NSA DC members and guests for a relaxed walk. We'll begin approximately 15 minutes after our meeting ends and walk for about 45-60 minutes; please bring snacks and water. If you have any questions, email me at: allison@allisonshapira.com

President's Letter:

Dear NSA-DC Members and Guests –

Welcome to the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the National Speakers Association (NSA-DC).  With over 100 professional speakers serving the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area, we are one of the premiere Chapters in the country providing exceptional education and networking opportunities for trainers, consultants, keynoters and anyone who speaks professionally. It is my honor to serve as the 2016-2017 President alongside our amazing Board of Directors.

Our goal is to provide our members with the highest-quality programs that will develop and grow your business.  We want NSA-DC to be the leading resource for all professional speakers in the Washington, D.C. Metro area. Check out or line-up for upcoming monthly programs.  We have top-notch speakers coming here just for you.

You’ll come for the programs and stay for the people!

We provide networking opportunities with our accomplished members. There is someone in the chapter who can help with your next business challenge.  I remember my first NSA-DC meeting. The members were friendly, welcoming and eager to help. Our members openly share tips and techniques to help you move forward. 
At NSA-DC, you can choose what best fits your needs.  We have:

  • Regular monthly Chapter meetings with top speakers from across the country.  The programs are designed to touch on all the topics that you need to grow your business;
  • Chapter Academy which is our ten-month educational program for up-and-coming professional speakers. New classes are starting in October 2016 and March 2017.  If you are serious about launching a successful speaking career, contact us to sign up.
  • Special programs and networking opportunities are offered throughout the year. For example, the Business Builders Networking Group is for those who want to learn from other members in an intimate setting. And other special programs are in the works.

Be sure to check our web site frequently to find out what educational, networking and other opportunities are coming up. You can also join us as a guest to experience our programs and members first-hand.
On behalf of the talented members of the NSA-DC Board, we look forward to serving the professional speakers in the Washington, DC area.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly at karen@karensnyder.com
