Message from The President of NSA GLAC3

Dear Members and Guests,


As the President of our National Speaker’s Association, Greater Los Angeles Chapter, (GLAC), I’m delighted to be not only leading our exceptional board but also an impressive group of committee members and volunteers. They are all working together to make your experience and growth as a speaker the very best it can be.


Our leadership is vital in making our GLAC vibrant, rich and energetic. As a member of GLAC you will receive valuable input for developing and measuring your speaking business. Beyond that, as a National Member of NSA, you have the opportunity to tap into the vast resources that our National Organization of 3,400+ members has to offer. Founded in 1973 by Cavett Robert, NSA has the comprehensive resources, cutting-edge tools, insightful education and productive events that speakers need to develop their brands and grow their business.

Here are my goals and mission statements for this coming year for GLAC, 2018-2019:


  • Focus and strengthen committees through strong accountability and involvement as they pursue clearly defined goals.
  • Implement an on-boarding process to effectively insure new members can clearly grasp how to best secure value for their business from involvement in GLAC and, consequently, steadily grow solid membership.
  • Creatively Fundraise to give back to our members(for Nat’l Events) with additional professional workshops, book launches, continued flash reports and auctions.
  • Deepen the weekend GLAC “Meeting Experience” with location and speakers that will help members grow in business, sales and technical expertise.
  • Strengthen and Empower Leadership for future years of continued growth. (focusing on individual leadership strengths)

6 Continue to expand the impact of our Speaker’s Academy to be one of the top NSA

           Academies in the Nation, not only with numbers of attendees, but with successful

           outcomes and content.


If you want to get involved or need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any member of our Board. I look forward to serving you in this amazing organization NSA-GLAC!



Deborah Johnson, M.A.

President, NSA-GLAC
