About Us

Welcome to the Carolinas Chapter of the National Speakers Association! Whether you’re a veteran speaker or just beginning your professional speaking career, you have come to the right place. NSA/Carolinas is the North and South Carolina Chapter of the National Speakers Association located in Tempe, Arizona, and one of 40 chapters located throughout the United States.

Our members represent speaking professions with a wide range of topics and expertise. We consist of full time and part time speakers, facilitators, seminar leaders, trainers, entertainers, authors, educators, consultants, speaker’s bureaus and more.

We meet four times a year (Jan, April, June, and Sept) along with a two-day Speakers School in November for speakers that want to advance their careers and people interested in learning how to get started in the business of speaking. Our events take place in Charlotte and are packed with great learning and networking opportunities. NSA/Carolinas secures world class speakers from throughout the United States who share their knowledge and expertise with our members and guests. Take advantage of the informal “Lunch and Learn” meetings happening throughout the year in random North and South Carolina locations. These provide opportunities for members to network in small intimate groups while supporting and encouraging one another in their speaking business.

Our Chapter is highly regarded within the National Speakers Association. Many of our members have achieved recognition and awards at the national level. Besides being an active part of our NSA/Carolinas Chapter, we’re often asked to speak at other NSA Chapters and for national workshops, conferences, and conventions.

As a member, you’ll have an opportunity to become part of a like-minded community of speaking professionals while pursuing learning opportunities, sharing knowledge, achieving higher levels of success, and making lasting friendships along the way.

We welcome guests and encourage you to attend meetings in order to get a first-hand experience of the value we provide. The one comment we hear over and over is, “I wish I had joined NSA years ago. Why did I wait so long?” Simply start by preregistering as a guest and we’ll be waiting at the front door to welcome you to NSA/Carolinas.
