Annual Dues – National Association Members
As an affiliate chapter of the National Speakers Association, we are governed by the policies and by-laws of the association. Currently, if one wishes to become a member of a local chapter, they must first qualify and join the national organization.
To be eligible for national membership, you only need to meet ONE of the following professional membership criteria:
Option 1: You have received compensation for 20 or more presentations within the 12 months prior to application. Supporting documentation can be any of the following: contracts, paid invoices, check copies, speaker agreements, tax returns or documents showing revenue has been generated as a result of your speaking engagements.
Option 2: You have given 20 or more presentations to audiences of 15 or more as part of a salaried position within the 12 months prior to application. Supporting documentation: a letter from your employer.
Option 3: You have earned $25,000 or more giving presentations (number of speaking engagements does not matter) within the 12 months prior to application. Supporting documentation can be: contracts, paid invoices, check copies or tax returns showing speaking income.
The documentation must be submitted to our national organization. If accepted, you must pay the required dues to become a member of NSA. Once national membership is achieved, you are eligible to join the local chapter. NSA New Orleans Chapter dues for national members are $100.00 per year and includes a listing on this website.
