Dear NSA Member,
Thank you to each of you who have been making this a banner year for the NSA‐GLAC! Our
finances are solid, even as we extend special discounts to all active board and committee
leaders for their continuing hard work. We see increased participation at every level, and we’re
poised to continue. In fact, this letter is about making you aware of the latest exciting member
benefit that has been added to NSA GLAC’s repertoire.
This benefit comes at no charge to our paid, professional members. Read on…
NSA GLAC is creating its First Annual Directory of Professional Speakers, to be both printed and
available online, with YOUR VERY OWN Speaker Profile included. With permission, we have borrowed the Directory concept from NSA Colorado where they had astounding booking response for their members from meeting planners, associations, trade groups, NSA clubs from
nearly 50 states and many other organizations that got a hold of their Directory.
Distribution for the Directory will include those organizations and many more such as local
corporations, associations, trade groups, and more. These organizations will be located in
southern California and statewide.
The directory is limited to the first 100 paid professional members who follow the instructions
below, and register to participate in the time frame specified.
Each participating member will receive a quantity (TBD) of printed mini‐book directories in
addition to the PDF output for unlimited distribution.
We are learning from NSA Colorado’s efforts in order to make our Directory an even better tool
that should be an essential part of your marketing plan. If you are serious about booking
speaking gigs and getting paid to speak, you need a solid plan and vast exposure including
participating in our Directory…and NSA GLAC is here to help you.
Best of all, if you are a paid, professional member of the national organization (national dues
must be current), and a paid member of GLAC for 2016‐2017 and 2017‐2018, then this benefit
comes to you FREE OF CHARGE.
If you were not a current member of GLAC during that period,
then the fee is $300 less the amount you paid for 2016‐2017 and/or 2017‐2018 dues, if any.
Only current members of the national organization as professional members are eligible to participate. The fee to participate is dependent on your membership status with GLAC.

You can get a sense of what the Directory design will be like by looking at the attached PDF file
of the NSA‐Colorado Directory.
I urge you to participate, because the more we collaborate on this project, the more value
created for each participant. If you are game to step up your game, please do the following
1. Respond to this email and advise us that you want to participate. Please send your
response email to: [email protected]
2. Once received, we will provide you with a link and registration code to begin the process
– and the same page will advise you what you need to pay (if anything) to participate.
Once your membership qualification and fees to participate are cleared to go, we will provide you the link so you can prepare your directory profile page which we will print in the Directory.
Time is of the essence because we expect to close out registration for the directory by the end
of November (30th) so we can complete the project by the end of the 1st quarter of 2018.
I know you will want to join us in this marketing opportunity … sign up now to secure your place in this long lasting and powerful professional marketing reference. The clock is ticking and the number of spots is limited.
Moving forward together,
Joel G. Block, CPA, CSP
NSA GLAC President and Academy Dean
