Become a Member

We welcome you and hope you will join NACA today. To become a member of our community: 

  1. Please review the membership criteria and the NACA member pledge.
  2. Apply for membership online or by fax or mail. If you are a part of a legal aid organization with multiple members, consider a legal aid organizational membership.

If you are a former NACA member whose membership has lapsed and you would like to reinstate, please contact us. If less than two years have passed since your membership lapsed, you will be reinstated at your previous membership level and won't need to reapply.

The Application Process

NACA is a community of peers who are dedicated to consumer law. Membership applications are peer vetted to ensure that all conversations take place and information is shared within a safe space.

Once your application has been submitted, it will be sent to your state chair for approval. This process usually takes between two and three weeks, depending on the volume of applications at that time. Once your application has been approved, we will activate your membership so that you will have access to NACA’s benefits.

When you submit your application, we will collect your payment information at that time, but your card will not be charged until your application has been approved. In the event that you withdraw your application or your application is not accepted, we will delete the encrypted payment information and no charge will be made to your card.


Member Scholarships

Individuals applying for membership or existing members preparing to renew can apply for a scholarship to cover a portion of your dues. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted. If you were offered a scholarship for the previous membership year, you are not eligible to apply. If you are awarded a scholarship and accept, we ask that you volunteer with us during the next year.


Legal Aid Organizational Membership

The organizational membership is only available to legal aid organizations. For $500, a legal aid organization can have five attorneys included in membership (more can be added for discounted dues of $100 per attorney). Also included in organizational membership are two complimentary webinars. Apply today.
