The National Speakers Association (NSA) was founded in 1973. Speakers who belong to NSA come from throughout the USA. There are local NSA chapters in 39 states, and they offer the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) certification, based on years of speaking experience, continuing education, and paid speaking dates. I was fortunate to attend an NSA meeting several years ago, as a guest. I also recommend networking with current NSA members before joining.
