Membership Liaison Initiative


Membership Liaison Program

UNA-NCA Membership Liaisons serve as representatives of UNA-NCA in assisting in the growth of UNA-NCA’s membership base and assisting current and new volunteers in participating in UNA-NCA activities. UNA-NCA Membership Liaisons are committed volunteers who are responsible for attending UNA-NCA and other external events as a resource for attendees on the association, its advocacy initiatives and membership. Membership Liaisons will also provide support to UNA-NCA committees in order to keep well-informed of volunteer engagement issues. Membership Liaisons serve one-year terms with an option to renew for an additional year.  Membership Liaisons are required to live in the UNA-NCA membership area (Washington, D.C., Maryland or Northern Virginia).
