The Voice of Professional Speakers in Arizona

Build Your Business Summer Social and Silent Auction

NSA-Arizona is pleased to be hosting our annual summer social on August 11, 2018.

Our focus this year is on providing you with the tools to Build Your Business! As our founder, Cavett Robert, was known to say: “As speakers, we never fight over a slice of the pie, instead we build a bigger pie!”

Our summer social is going to be a potluck with the Chapter providing the meat. Here is the link to sign up to bring a dish. Due to liability considerations, alcoholic beverages will not be provided by the Chapter, but you are welcome to bring your own choice of an adult beverage.

Our summer social will include the exciting silent auction, giving all attendees an opportunity to bid on valuable donations from our members that will contribute to your business success. Proceeds will benefit our chapter and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a non-profit association as part of our social outreach commitment.
