Aspiring Speaker Benefits

Aspiring Speakers

The National Speakers Association, founded in 1973, is a community of more than 3,000 professional speakers, trainers, coaches, and consultants who use the spoken word to impact an audience. NSA is the world’s premiere association for professional speakers providing the comprehensive resources, mentoring, and professional connections speakers need to become more effective in all aspects of their trade.

To be a Professional Member of the Pittsburgh chapter of NSA, you must first be a member-in-good-standing of the National Speakers Association.
