Summer Time with NSA Northwest

August began NSA Northwest’s 2017-2018 calendar of events.

We had a fantastic turnout for our summer celebration at our Programming Chairs home, Laura Leist.

It was a beautiful summer day with great friends, hearty laughter and several new faces.

AND…who can resist a summer celebration cake!



Board Member Annual Retreat

The coming year will be customized to you. We strategized and collaborated to bring you the best chapter experience we can. Watch President Lisa Copeland and President Elect Elisa Hays preparing for the Retreat dinner and meeting.


Improving Your Chapter Experience

Our #1 goal is to help speakers increase their income and grow their business.  We will be continuing with our two bonus segments within each meeting; TOP 10 and PRO X. Professional members, available dates are going fast! Sign-up at the next meeting. 

The August Top 10 was delivered by Don Crawley, CSP:  Benefits of Becoming a Professional Member. We are here to help you elevate your professional status. What can we do to get you to the next level of membership in NSA Northwest?


Let the Programs Begin!

August launched our program year with Keynote Speaker, Corporate Trainer & Image Consultant Sylvie di Giusto.  The general session topic:  Discover the Magic of eLearning, taught us how to generate passive income with e-learning opportunities!  NSA Northwest Professional Members attended a bonus session on Leadership Image!  Sylvie brought her “A-game” and we all will strive to live our unique brand image with more passion.


Coming to NSA Northwest September 15th

Mike Robertson:  No Power, No Point.

REGISTER HERE if your PowerPoint presentations are a cure for insomnia!




NSA Steps Up for Hurricane Harvey Victims

NSA National Members have stepped forward to donate to their fellow speakers who have been directly affected by Hurricane Harvey. In the community spirit of NSA’s Founder Cavett Robert, we’ve also received questions from non-member NSA Chapter program participants, who wish to donate to those in need as well. Yes, you can! Please help us spread the word to your aspiring speaker communities about how they can help.

View President Brian Walter video here.

Those who wish to donate can give in one of two ways:

  • By check made out to National Speakers Association with “Hurricane Relief Fund” in the memo section
  • By calling NSA staff 480-968-2552 with their credit card donation


NSA Northwest is Making History: 

President Brian Walter, CSP, CPAE and Vice President Anna Liotta, CSP are paving the way for NSA leadership!  For the first time ever, NSA Northwest is represented on the national board by a current National President and Vice President who happen to be two of our most dedicated professional members.

To celebrate the occasion, Bill Stainton, CSP and Vanna Novak hosted a class-act evening at the World Trade Center in Seattle.








You can view the celebration videos on NSA Northwest Chapter Facebook page.

A Final Thought

I would like to personally extend an invitation to all of you in our northwest community to reach out to me any time with questions, comments, ideas concerns or meeting for a “coffee clink”.  The NSA Northwest Chapter exists because of passionate people like you. We are here to serve you.  Let’s grow our business together!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!


Warmest Regards,

Lisa Copeland

President, NSA Northwest Chapter
