The NSA-DC Chapter is a resilient, inclusive, and committed organization that welcomes speakers from all walks of life. Representing members from the greater DC/MD/VA area, aka the “DMV” isour mainstay. Inthe past few years, we have had to face of unprecedented circumstances. Yet we have learnt to pivot, shift, and keep moving forward. We’ve learned to stretch and grow in different and exciting ways. As we continue to maneuver the ever-changing realities of our world NSA-DC will continue to do what we do best, be the place where speakers go to grow their business.
I was born in Northern Ireland and one of my favorite Irish sayings is, “Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine,” which can be translated as, “Under the shadow of each other we thrive”. The speaking, training, consulting and coaching world can be a very lonely one. It vital to survive and thrive that we have support, encouragement but also challenge. NSA-DC is such a community. I am in awe at times of the generosity of spirit of our membership.
My commitment to our chapter in the coming year as President is to work with our board to provide you top class educational events, networking opportunities to connect with other members so that we can continue to grow and be challenged.
We are a volunteer organization, and we are a strong as the willingness of our members to get involved in the chapter. Therefore, I invite you to consider offering some of your time and expertise in the coming year. We have many volunteer opportunities and one of them is waiting for you. What’s more there is no better way of getting to know other members.
If you are not a member, we invite you to attend one of our upcoming meetings as a guest. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our community.
