A Community of Professional Speakers

The St. Louis Chapter of the National Speakers Association


Office Hours

Do you have questions regarding your member benefits, opportunities for growth in NSA St. Louis, or other topics?

Our NSA STL chapter wants to help you however we can, and Office Hours is your chance to meet one-on-one with a member of the NSA St. Louis Board of Directors who can help with the answers you need.

Each month, we will select a day and time to chat and answer any questions you might have via Zoom.

This forum will be open-ended in terms of content and can be dictated by whoever shows up.  We can cover:

~ membership questions, e.g., what’s the difference between local and national membership, and what are benefits of both?

~ ideas around about what type of speakers and topics you’d like to see at upcoming meetings or Lunch & Learns

~ questions about your own speaking business: topic/sales/marketing.

We can’t promise we’ll have all the answers, but hopefully this time will provide some direct communication in a smaller group setting that can help you get the most out of your membership and navigate your speaking business through the support this community offers.

Just check here each month for the upcoming date and time, and get those questions answered!

The next Office Hour will be:

TIME: Noon – 1:00 pm CT
