We’re glad you want to be a member of NSA/NC!
To join the National Speakers Association Northern California Chapter, you’ll first need to be a Professional or Professional Affiliate member of NSA’s national organization. If you’re already successfully speaking or training, or if you provide services to speakers, apply today for national membership. You’ll be asked to create a login profile, provide documentation of your professional status, and submit your first-year payment ($175 one-time initiation fee + $465 annual membership dues).
As soon as you’ve been accepted as a National member, join your Northern California chapter and be part of our community! Chapter dues are $150; if you’re a Professional member, you can pay online, send a check (NSA/NC, P.O. Box 4817, Santa Clara CA 95056-4817), or call or email our office (650-646-4220, firstname.lastname@example.org). We’ll confirm your National status and welcome you publicly on the platform at the next NSA/NC meeting. And you’ll be able to enjoy the recognition and benefits that go with being a member of NSA/NC.
If you don’t yet meet the qualifications for membership, we’ll help you get there!
- Come to our chapter meetings. Non-members as well as members are welcome at NSA/NC’s meetings and salons. You’ll learn from successful speakers and get support for building your speaking business.
- Enroll in NSA/NC’s Speakers Academy. The chapter’s nine-month intensive shortens your learning curve as you develop your speaking career. It’s face-to- face and filled with opportunities for collaboration and masterminding—you’ll build relationships as you learn and apply ideas that accelerate your business growth. (The National organization also has a Speakers Academy, an online educational program that’s separate from, and complementary to, the NSA/NC Speakers Academy.)
