It's Official. Austin, Texas now has an active National Speakers Association chapter.
Many years ago there was a chapter than was made up of professional speakers from all across Central and South Texas. The Heart of Texas Chapter fell away a few years ago, but local professional speaker and NSA member Sara Canaday took initiative. One year ago she reached out to the local NSA members, and speakers who are not NSA members, and inquired about starting a chapter.
The level of interest was high, and the ball started rolling!
The "Austin Speakers Network" was born from that original meeting of about 20 people. Since that time a board was formed, successful monthly lunch meetings and other industry specific workshops have been held and a petition for membership was submitted to NSA Headquarters.
We received the news last week that we were granted the charter effective in December 2010.
If you are a professional speaker, or work in and around the meetings business, we hope you will join us for our future events.
