NSA GLAC Chapter is on Fire!
We are getting record attendance at our monthly chapter meetings. We are raising funds like never before, and we have created a scholarship program to recycle dollars that we raise at our meetings from speakers who contribute services to our members back to members, who go to national events to further enhance their skills. We have implemented several initiatives that have brought back our past presidents and have encouraged new members to join in numbers that we haven’t seen in recent memory.
Our board of directors is completely engaged, as are our committee leaders and other members of the leadership team. If you would like to be part of our leadership team, then please connect with us and let us know at the next meeting.
The scholarship committee has awarded a total of nine individuals the opportunity to attend the national winter conference, which will be held in Baltimore beginning February 16. Four of the attendees representing our chapter are individuals who are on the track for professional membership, while the remaining delegates are currently national members, all working hard to enhance their skills and bring back intelligence that will help the chapter.
The delegates representing our chapter (not all of whom received a scholarship) are:
- Adam Coughran
- Carly Lewis
- Deborah Johnson
- Dwight Holcomb
- Irene Turtle
- Joel Block, CPA, CSP
- Kathy Gruver, PhD, LMT, CHt
- Lance Miller
- Reggie Lewis
- Reiner Roeske
- Tom Oser, PhD
We hope that you will make the investment in your speaking career so that we can help and make additional investment in you. Our chapter is thoroughly committed not only to excellence, but also to expansion and to helping all members of the community want to grow and enhance their speaking business to be more successful and to stretch in ways that they could not have previously imagined. Congratulations to the winners of our scholarship program. We expect to announce a similar program at our March 10, 2018 chapter meeting for applicants who want to attend the National Influence Conference in July of 2018. Be sure to join us if you would like to learn more.
Keep speaking. Keep growing. And keep making it happen.
