NSA Competencies and Certification

NSA is committed to helping its members achieve their highest levels of competence as professional speakers. To fulfill that commitment, the NSA Board of Directors has adopted Eight Professional Competencies to be mastered by Association members. They range from awareness of the speaking industry and industry professionals, to developing and presenting topics, to marketing and managing a speaker's business.

The Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation is earned through a combination of professional association, professional education, professional performance and professional business management standards. Hit the link above to learn more about the CSP.

How are you growing as a professional speaker? The Professional Speaker Assessment Profile is a self-assessment tool designed to help you analyze your competence as a professional speaker based on these eight professional competencies.
