A new group has formed in Iowa that aims to be both a resource where groups can find guest speakers and a place where speakers can improve their skills. Gavin Jerome is president of the new Iowa chapter of the National Speakers Association.Jerome says members specialize in areas including agriculture, humor, leadership, science, sales training, team building and more. He says the new association aims to help people who have to take the podium become better at capturing and holding an audience.He says the N-S-A of Iowa also wants to serve as a place where organizations statewide can go to get experts, motivators, trainers and communicators.For more information, call 800-964-2846.
