i love being a member frame


NCRA membership creates an element of accountability within ourselves. It’s easy to do the job, make the money, spend the money. But if you are involved or invested in something beyond ourselves, or in addition to other people, it allows you to hopefully feel motivated and inspired to get involved, volunteer, and give back.
