Our NSA North Texas Labs are learning workshops conducted during a weekday evening.  Less formal than the chapter meeting, they allow members and candidates to gather together to network and learn from the evening’s speaker on topics about the professional speaking business.

All 2016-2017 Labs are free for All-Access Passholders and $27 for all others.

Labs will be held at Hackberry Creek Country Club, 1901 W Royal Ln, Irving, Texas 75063 and will usually be the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 6:30 – 9:30 PM except as noted in lab info below.
