Membership Renewal

Renew your PSA membership. Renew your commitment to your professional community.

We hope you’ve enjoyed your year of membership in the Professional Speechwriters Association.

We hope just being a member of the PSA has given you the peace of mind and comfort that comes from knowing you’re not alone, that you’re part of a community of people who are every bit as serious about their work in leadership communication as you are.

We also hope you’ve taken full advantage of your membership—and not just by enjoying spoils like your subscription to Vital Speeches, the discounts you’re entitled to and participating in the online and in-person networking and professional development forums the PSA provides. This young and growing association also needs your ideas and your leadership. As PSA executive director David Murray paraphrases JFK (and of course speechwriter Ted Sorensen), “Ask not what your professional association can do for you. Ask what you can do, for your professional association.” David is always available to hear your ideas for continued growth and more useful service, and encourages members to write to him anytime.

So renew your membership. And, renew your commitment to the leadership communication community.

To renew, simply click on the proper rate based on your current professional status and fill out the form so that we have all your latest information. You’ll automatically be renewed for another year.
