In 1973 Cavett Robert started the National Speakers Association (NSA) to support professional speakers – people who speak for a living and have a speaking business – to learn, exchange ideas and share experiences.

The NSA-KC chapter strives to honor that intent by supporting professional NSA members in a 5-state region (Kansas, Western Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas). We welcome individuals who are professional members of National Speakers Association and who want to develop mastery in both their speaking and business building skills.
