About Us

The National Speaker's Association

The National Speakers Association (NSA) is the leading source for community, education and entrepreneurial business knowledge needed to be successful in the speaking profession.


NSA Mountain West Vision:

Every expert who uses the spoken word to present content to an audience for a fee belongs to NSA.

Our Members:

NSA’s thousands of members include experts in a variety of industries and disciplines, who reach audiences as speakers, trainers, educators, humorists, motivators, consultants, authors and more.

NSA is a member of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), a global network dedicated to advancing the speaking profession worldwide.

NSA seeks to always advance professional speakers’ skill sets in four core areas:


The art of speaking and the use of powerful and persuasive presentations. This means creating the proper setting for an effective presentation as well as the concrete skills related to presenting, performing and theatrical methods.



The purposeful undertaking of a successful speaking business venture. This includes business management, sales and marketing knowledge, as well as the skills necessary to generate income through speaking engagements and other revenue streams.


Speaking Ethics

The principles or standards governing the conduct of those in the speaking profession. Ethics is the foundation and summation of the three other competencies. It is about who you are as a person — both personally and professionally – and encompasses your reputation, character and integrity.



The knowledge, skills and experience in a specific area. Speakers should know which body of expertise is ideal for them and be able to effectively research and develop their content.
