Sections promote NCFR's mission and the common interests of NCFR members in specified family areas. They provide a means of increasing communication and interaction among NCFR members of similar interests within the framework of the larger organization.

NCFR maintains a discussion group for each section, providing an avenue for section members to communicate. All section members are automatically subscribed to the section discussion group.

For more information about section governance, activities, and available resources, see the sections policy handbook.

Why be in a section?

You probably joined NCFR for the ideas, information, and networking that a professional association can provide. Section participation makes that happen through online discussion groups, and opportunities for professional growth and recognition, such as conference participation, committee involvement, and awards.

Changing your section membership, and section dues

To add a section to your membership, go to the member log-in page, enter your user name and password, choose the additional sections you want to join, then "check out."

To remove a section from your membership, email [email protected] and let us know which section to remove; please include your member number in the email.

Section dues apply for participation in each section; the section dues fee is $5 per section for professional/emeritus members and $3 per section for students. Section membership is concurrent with your base membership. You may join or change sections anytime during the membership period, but fees are not discounted or refunded.
