Keynote Speech

  • Each year the NEDAA selects a written speech from an Active member as the Keynote Speech for the NED Convention. The entry will be selected by the NEDAA delegation prior to Convention. The winning applicant will receive a $100 stipend and will be asked to speak at the opening of the District Convention.
  • The 2017 topic: We are all faced with tough situations in our everyday lives. Maybe it is a challenging group member on a project or a health issue. It could be a difficult family situation or a professor you just don’t see eye to eye with. However, we have the values of our organization that we strive to uphold in even the toughest situations. How do you internalize the values of Kappa Kappa Psi/Tau Beta Sigma and use them when situations are difficult? How do the organizations get you through hard times?
