The mission of the National Club Association is to defend, protect and advance the interests and well-being of private social and recreational clubs. As the only Washington, D.C.-based trade association representing the legislative and legal interests of private clubs, NCA is dedicated to advancing the private club agenda in Congress, in the regulatory agencies, in the statehouses and in the courthouses. NCA ensures that the private club industry’s voice is heard on a wide range of federal, regulatory, state and legal issues.
NCA’s Government Relations staff spends much of its time on Capitol Hill, meeting with members of the House and Senate, their staffs, and key Congressional Committee personnel to discuss the many challenges and opportunities for the private club industry.
With a focus on pro-club, pro-growth and pro-business initiatives, NCA spends considerable time educating and lobbying members of Congress on the impact proposed legislation might have on the private club industry and attending Congressional hearings while Congress is in session. In addition, we are part of numerous coalitions relevant to the success of the private club industry.
As the voice of the private club industry, NCA monitors the legislative progress of federal and state bills that affect private clubs and our industry. When bills are first introduced, alerts are sent to NCA members with insight and analysis on the impact a bill could have on their clubs. Through grassroots mobilization, NCA then attempts to stop damaging legislation before it is enacted. Read More.
