Be a better speaker. Build a better business. That's what NSA
Most professional speakers struggle to turn their expertise into
a highly-profitable and scalable business. That's because the
speaking business is completely unique.
For nearly 50 years, the
National Speakers Association (NSA) has helped tens of
thousands of speakers propel their business by answering
these questions through professional development and
brings the world’s leading speakers together, curate
content, and negotiate services that
transform your speaking craft and business.
About the history of the former NSA San Diego
For many, many years, NSA-San Diego was the local chapter of the
nationwide NSA organization but, despite a strong history and
many members in San Diego county, the chapter hit a time in the
mid 2010s when our busy members weren't stepping up to
leadership to keep solid programming going in our city.
In 2023, recognizing both this struggle and the talent/interest
in San Diego county, NSA-LA rebranded itself as
NSA-SoCal to make San
Diegans feel welcome and included in their excellent
chapter. NSA-SoCal, with its on-going strong programs, is
a powerful asset in making speakers and speaker businesses
Accordingly, the San Diego Chapter came to an end and is now
simply the San Diego Members Group, doing occasional social and
business connecting for members who are interested in
making friends and alliances with other NSA members in San
The San Diego Members Group encourages those interested in
learning more about the profession of speaking to join
National Speakers Association
and, if a resident of SoCal, to look into the excellent
programming of NSA-SoCal.
NSA SoCal is the professional association for individuals who
use the spoken word to influence others. Events are held in Los
Angeles and Orange County to empower SoCal speakers to connect
Current members include past national presidents of NSA-SoCal,
Hall of Fame speakers, Cavett Award Winners, a Golden Gavel
Award recipient, best selling authors, producers, celebrity
speakers and other high-quality speakers that want to share
secrets to help empower your speaking career.
If you are an NSA member residing in southern California, you’ll
want to join the chapter to connect with your local peers.
you aspire to become a professional speaker, NSA SoCal’s
professional speaking school, NSA SoCal Speakers Academy, is a
leading national program. NSA SoCal Speakers Academy will
