"My dear friend invited me to attend a chapter meeting a few years ago.  At the time, I did not realize I was taking the most significant step to building a successful speaking business. I have made so many great friends who have provided guidance and encouragement when I wanted to quit.  The speakers and chapter meetings always provide ideas and insights to grow my speaking and consulting practice.  I encourage you to attend a chapter meeting and see for yourself if NSA will help you with the business of speaking."

"When saying “yes” to being on the board of NSA-LA (then GLAC), I never imagined I’d serve as President, but it was a wonderful experience and opportunity. Not only did I get to work with an incredible team who gave so much of themselves, but with the amazing guest speakers we were able to bring in. Some of my favorite times were our Friday night dinners when we got to spend more “up close” time with the guest speakers and our leadership team, laughing, eating and learning more about their successful speaking business. I got to watch our team grow as well as many of our members as we focused on our main mission, to help speakers grow their speaking business. It was truly a privilege to serve."
