Chapter Leadership Awards
NSA New Orleans also offers opportunities for members to grow their leadership and service skills. Our chapter has long recognized the Chapter Members of the Year. In 2004, the Board of Directors created a new leadership award named after the original recipient, Billy Arcement. The Billy Arcement Leadership Award which will become an annual presentation, is the highest award for service a member can receive and is equivalent in statue to the Cavett, the most prestigious award given annually by the National Speakers Association to one of its over 4000 members.
