Regional Council Members
A national network of regional council members works with NCA board member liaisons in their regions to communicate more effectively with NCA members and private club leadership. Regional council members are club managers and other leaders who serve as key contacts at a grassroots level, and also help NCA track trends and issues on a local level. Council members also assist with the development of publications and help NCA headquarters staff with recruitment and retention activities.
