Speakers wanted!

The Board Retailers Association (BRA) is looking to identify potential speakers for upcoming conferences, trade shows and retail-focused educational events. All potential candidates must be professionals with compelling insights, industry experience, expertise and real-world case studies.

BRA is a non-profit representing over 3,500 retail storefronts in the surf, skate, snow, wake, wind and kite industry. The audience is primarily specialty action sport retailers. This year we are focused on best practices for implementing digital/online technology and tools to drive business. We are searching for experts on the following topics in the context of action sports and retail:

Social Media
Building a website
Broadcasting live events online

If you are an industry expert interested in lending your specialty with surf, skate and snowboarding retailers via presentations, speaking engagements, webinars, etc., please contact the association directly by emailing Vicki Vasil at We will send more details about our audience, the topics, and events.

Please note, this would be a non-paid speaking event (presentation must be educational in nature and not on selling a product or service), and speakers are responsible for payment of their own travel and accommodation. The exposure is great and grants you access to action sports events otherwise closed to the public.

Thank you in advance for your consideration! We’re proud to provide some of the most informative and exciting presentations and are looking forward to introducing you to our members.
