Searching for ain a particular region, or one with a specific topic? Professional Speaker Link, a new CD-ROM produced by he national Speakers Association, allows meeting planners to search for speakers by name, topic, keyword, geographical region, or a combination of those factors.
In addition to the speakers directory, the CD-ROM features a supplier guide, which includes listings of hotels, resorts, AV vendors, exhibit contractors, video production companies, and other vendors. The suppliersâ€™ guide is also searchable by area, category, or keyword.
The CD-ROM is free to meeting planners; copies have been mailed this month to 50,000 corporate and association planners. If you are not on NSAâ€™s list, you can order your copy by calling (480) 968-2552, or visit www.nsaspeaker.org. The NSA will update produce annual updates of the CD-ROM, which will also be complimentary.
