The Connecticut Chapter of the National Speaker’s Association (NSA-CT) was chartered in 2003. Abby Marks Beale, Susan Keane Baker and Marcie Shepard were driving forces behind the chartering. Abby, with Susan and Marcie’s help, had been running an informal speaker’s group in Connecticut for several years before the members of the group voted to become an affiliated chapter of NSA. Abby served as the chapter’s first president.
