If you’re speaking for a living now, membership in CAPS will connect you to the speaking community internationally, provide you access to the latest industry practices, and link you to experts and suppliers in virtually every field imaginable. You’ll benefit from being plugged into the pulse of the industry worldwide.

If you’re currently speaking as part of your job and are considering a full time career as a professional speaker, there is no better place to be. We provide programs, information, and access to fellow experts on a regular and

If you’re just starting out on a speaking career, we have “emerging speaker “ training programs through our

Chapters across  the country. You’ll find more information here.
