Learn more about membership here.


As a member-driven association, NALP relies on the contributions of its volunteers. Every NALP member has a unique perspective and there are many ways to contribute. We regularly need volunteers at all levels, whether you have a couple of hours to spare or would like to commit yourself to serving in a leadership role on a Section, Advisory Group, Work Group, or the Board of Directors. And NALP volunteer opportunities have provided rich experiences that have helped many members advance their careers.


Joining a NALP Section is often the first step toward learning and sharing your ideas, meeting your colleagues, and contributing your skills and experience to advancing our profession. Maybe you have talent or expertise that you’d like to share, or perhaps there are unfamiliar areas you’d like to explore.  Regardless, Sections provide the perfect setting to connect with members with similar interests. To learn more and join a Section please visit

Advisory Groups and Work Groups

While Advisory Groups and some Work Group membership is generally established by the President-Elect prior to the Annual Education Conference, opportunities can arise throughout the year because of inevitable transitions, and the formation of new groups to address an emerging task or issue. To learn more about Advisory Groups and Work Groups please visit

Additional Opportunities

Beyond Sections, Advisory Groups and Work Groups, here are other ways to get involved in NALP:

  • Contribute an article to the NALP Bulletin+ or other publication.
  • Get involved in NALP leadership! NALP is an association that is led by its volunteers.  As a NALP leader, you will contribute to the growth and vibrancy of our organization, grow as a leader, and expand your own professional network by working collaboratively with other dedicated colleagues from diverse backgrounds and geographies.  Nominate yourself or a colleague for a leadership position during the nomination cycle in the fall (find information on available positions and the nominations process here). The nomination process is typically open in the fall.
  • Serve as a NALP liaison to one of our many affiliate organizations.
