Ron Karr, CSP, of Westwood, NJ, was inducted as the 2013-2014 president at the 2013 NSA Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by the National Speakers Association (NSA), the leading organization for professional speakers.
“The association has meant a lot to me in terms of the impact it’s had on my business and personal life,” said Karr. “It’s a pleasure to be able to give back through my leadership abilities. I also look forward to this experience as being a tremendous growth opportunity for both the association and myself. My goal is to position NSA as the premier association for professional speakers to come and grow their business, no matter what level they are currently at, and for meeting planners/executives, to look at NSA as the go-to place for experts who can move audiences to action via the spoken word. I also want to embrace technology, and all mediums, to help our members grow professionally.”
