Features and Benefits of Professional Membership
Professional Speakers Australia is dedicated to supporting professional speakers in the continuing development of their speaking craft and business.
Below is a list of features and benefits that PSA membership offers designed to fulfil this purpose.
Discounted Registration to PSA Events and Programs
National Online Events
PSA delivers monthly, high quality, National Online Events featuring amazing speakers and the opportunity to discuss the content. These are included as a benefit of membership.
State Chapter Meetings
Each of the five PSA Chapter groups (NSW|ACT, QLD|NT, VIC|TAS, WA and SA) run regular events (usually monthly) which are a great opportunity to make local industry connections with fellow speakers and learn from featured expert presenters.
The PSA flagship event of the year, our annual convention is typically held in late March or early April. It features leading International and Australian speakers and provides a great opportunity for members to enjoy outstanding professional development, meet the key players in the speaking industry and network with your peers. Convention is a life-changing and career-defining event not to be missed.
Associate members are entitled to book, pay and attend all international events with the 16 affiliated Global Speakers Federation member associations. This means members can travel to and attend international events at that association’s member rates.
PSA Knowledge Bank is a member-only online platform for helping speakers realise their unique vision of success. It is PSA’s constantly growing learning and development hub and covers all elements of PSA’s 8 Core Competencies in addition to other courses and resources for running a thriving speaking business.
BOOST! Virtual Group Coaching Program
A PSA Owned 6 month Coaching System that Accelerates Speaking Productivity & Profits which is available on application only.
Join your CSP peers for fellowship, insights, sharing and discussion. The CSP Café – a free, CSP only program – is your chance to get to know your CSP peers and get their insights into a topic, issue or challenge you’d like to unpack, explore, ponder, examine. You will receive monthly reminder emails – attend as it suits your schedule.
One of the great gifts we are given when you attend a PSA Platform Professionals™ Summit is the opportunity to connect with like minded people. People who get what you do, who can relate to the challenges you face as a Professional Speaker, Educator, Facilitator and Coach.

Rules for Use of Membership Status & PSA Logo in Marketing and Promotion
The National Board has issued these Rules for the guidance of members in their dealings with the market. These Rules are designed to ensure fairness, clarity and simplicity, and to avoid the market being misled in any material way. These Rules apply to all forms of marketing and information supplied to users and potential users of the services of professional speakers.
All members are also reminded that their behaviours are bound in general terms by the PSA’s ethical rules and by Commonwealth and State Legislation, particularly the Trade Practices Act and its prohibition on ‘false and misleading conduct’ and the equivalent Fair Trading Acts in the various States, which contain similar prohibitions.
Certified Speaking Professionals will be listed on the Professional Speakers Australia website.
