From the President

Welcome to the Minnesota chapter of the National Speakers Association. My name is Jon Lokhorst and it’s my pleasure to serve as the chapter president for 2022-23.

I learned about our state chapter at my first Influence, the annual convention held by our national association. I was warmly welcomed by the Minnesota contingent, which treated me as if we’d been friends for years. I promptly joined the chapter that evening when I got back to my hotel room.

If you’re not yet a chapter member, please consider joining today. The national organization recently changed its requirements so you can now join the local chapter without becoming a national member first.

Our theme for this year is AMPLIFY:

  • Your message
  • Your business
  • Your impact

Ultimately, we’re here to provide resources to develop your presentation skills and build a successful speaking business, regardless of where you are in your journey. Visit the events page for our schedule of monthly chapter meetings and amazing speakers. Watch for special member-only bonus programs during the year.

If you’re new (or relatively new) to the speaking business, check out our Speaker Academy. It’s a great way to gain the tools and resources you’ll need to take your speaking career to the next level.

If you’re already an NSA-Minnesota member, thank you for your continued support and investment in our community.

Feel free to contact me or a member of our Board of Directors if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Jon Lokhorst
2022-23 President
