Memberships are Individual Annual Memberships. If you purchase a membership, but later leave your position, you retain your membership. If an agency purchases a membership for an individual and they leave or change positions before the membership expires, the agency can request to have the membership transferred to a new employee at no additional cost (see Frequently Asked Questions below). 


Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Want to transfer a paid membership from one staff member to another mid-year? Please submit a new Member Registration Form for the new staff member and choose "invoice me." Then email membership@novaa.org and let us know who to transfer the membership from and to. We will take care of transferring the already-paid membership to the new staff member and canceling the invoice, and the transferred membership will last until its original renewal date.
