One of the most valuable services offered by NSA-WI is the “Speakers Development Lab.” All members from Past National Presidents and CPAE’s to new candidate members are welcome to attend. The Lab operates much like a Hollywood “Actors Studio” where speakers, facilitators, seminar leaders, those who sell products or services through public presentations, etc. can go to try out new material, revise current material, practice delivery techniques, etc.
