President's Message, Jane Jenkins Herlong, CSP

“What?!  Give up my Saturday to go to a local NSA/Carolina’s Chapter Meeting?” Have you ever asked yourself this question?  I have. To be honest, I did not attend NSA/Carolinas' Meetings for several years as I had school-age children in the house, I was busy speaking and had other family responsibilities.  I attended the National Speakers Association Con-ventions, their workshops and I earned my CSP, (Certified Speaking Professional Designation) And, truthfully,  I thought that I did not need my perceived idea of elementary speaking topics offered on the local chapter level. I was wrong.
A few years ago, Patrick Henry, CSP called and asked if I would serve as his Vice President of Programs for his year as Chapter President.  I thought, “How do I say no to one of the sons of my dear, departed friend, Robert Henry, CSP, CPAE?”  So, I went back home to NSA/Carolinas where it all began for me in 1990.  And, in the year 2011, I was hooked! After being absent for many years, I realized by returning to NSA/Carolinas how much I did not know.  Willey Jolley, CSP, CPAE said it best, “Jane, I am learning so much from kids in their 20’s wearing jeans, shirt-tails out and worn-out tennis shoes.  We better pay attention.” Read More
