Approximately 300 buying group association chapters were contacted this week on behalf of NAID Certified Secure Destruction Specialists (CSDS) who are available to speak as part of the CSDS Speakers’ Bureau. Those associations include ARMA International, International Facility Management Association (IFMA), ASIS International, Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) and American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).

“If history is any indication, promoting the CSDS Speakers Bureau to such association meetings should produce scores of speaking opportunities,” said Bob Johnson, NAID CEO. “Years ago, when NAID was first making a name for itself, a similar campaign resulted in almost 100 invitations to speak.”

Currently, any accredited CSDS is eligible to participate in the speakers’ bureau. While the speaking engagements resulting from participation in the program are educational in nature, they still provide a great opportunity for these professionals to showcase their expertise. NAID will continue promoting the CSDS Speakers’ Bureau regularly to generate interest.

Training for the upcoming round of CSDS exams will begin in October. Exams will be offered regionally starting in December and culminating with the last exam at the NAID 2015 Annual Conference in Grapevine, Texas, just outside of Dallas.
