Below is a list of our current affiliated local Councils.
Local and regional Councils are affiliated with NACN-USA, yet are independent entities. Members of the national organization, NACN-USA, who also wish to join a council, if one exists in their area, will have dual membership by indicating the council of choice when making application (see “Membership – Registration” and click on Constituent Member).
