Be proud of your NSA Carolinas members and chapter!
Thirty-nine (39) of us returned from Influence, the National Speaker Association's annual conference, earlier this month. We're so proud of our thirteen (13) attendees who were first-timers as well.
NSA Carolinas received "ELITE" Chapter status recognizing us as one of the top chapters in the country. Special recognition to previous Board members who worked hard in the past to pave the way to current success.
Special recognition to those chapter members below who served the conference in extraordinary ways and others who received distinguished recognition!
