President's Message:

Welcome to the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the National Speakers Association (NSA-DC), the organization of choice for more than 100 professional speakers serving the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. 

NSA-DC offers a variety of programs and services for the established speaker, training for the aspiring speaker, and is a go-to resource for meeting planners nationwide looking for five-star professional speakers.

At NSA-DC, we offer: 

A Network of like-minded professionals with a passion for speaking/training/consulting/coaching 

Methods and Models to enhance platform skills, develop your expertise, and get results 

Opportunities to see and be seen by your peers and industry leaders 

Our members are our reason for connecting, collaborating, and communicating. Member engagement drives our core objectives. During our board retreat, we identified three major goals for the year; they are financial stability, increased membership, and enhanced member experience. By providing an exceptional member experience, the rest will follow. We know that to have member engagement, we need to offer the best experience. 

But, we need each of you! NSA-DC is your professional organization of speakers working to support each other to advance the fine art of public speaking; increase the visibility of speakers in the region, and educate the next generation of professional speakers. We can do this, and more, with your participation and your involvement. Opportunities for networking, volunteering, mentoring and more are within your reach. As a member, you are the lifeblood of the profession. As guests, you have a chance to experience our content-rich programs, our network, and to audit our Speakers Academy. 

I am honored to serve as the 2017-2018 President alongside our talented Board of Directors and Committee Chairs. We welcome your input, your involvement, and your ideas. I invite you to reach out to me at sharon@sharonmweinstein.com with your questions and suggestions. 

Come for the content and stay for the networking; we are your community, and your speaking future! 

Sharon M. Weinstein, CSP
