Advancing the Speaking Profession Since 1973
Welcome to NSA KY!
As a 30-year member of NSA and NSA KY, I believe in this organization as a powerful support system for professional speakers. I wouldn’t have been able to begin and grow two thriving businesses without the community of like-minded professionals who want to help make this world a better place.
Small, but Mighty!
NSA Kentucky is not a large chapter, but the quality of our membership is superb. The Kentucky chapter is called home by 10+ Certified Speaking Professionals (CSPs), multiple CPAE Hall of Fame recipients, two National NSA Past-Presidents, and two Cavett Award recipients – our profession’s most cherished honor. Our chapter is bursting with talent and success!
In addition to networking with rock star speakers at our local chapter meetings, this year we’re lining up tremendous expertise from across the country, starting with our incoming NSA President, Dan Thurman. This coming fall and next spring, we’ll cover a plethora of strategic and tactical topics that will help you craft your perfect message, enhance your eloquence on the platform, and learn ways to grow your business to create greater profitability.
To accommodate our chapter members throughout Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, we are offering monthly webinars called “In the Weeds”—covering nitty-gritty topics on issues as diverse as how to find the right newsletter product to how to create more effective online learning programs.
Continuing the strategy of making it easier for our members to make attendance at meetings possible, we are shifting to less frequent but longer meetings on Saturdays, offering half- and full-day programs for those traveling. We’ll also host some networking and shirtsleeves events in various cities throughout the tri-state area.
We’ll also have another robust Academy program for those new to NSA and/or the speaking business, providing you with the tools to hit the ground running!

I encourage you to renew your membership with the NSA Kentucky chapter to shorten the learning curve and reach your goals faster!
