The North American Conference of Associates and Religious is a membership organization that acts as a catalyst to serve, empower and promote the Associate-Religious relationship. It is structured around two types of membership:
Community membership is the backbone of NACAR. This level of membership is meant to serve the needs of Associate and Community Leadership. Membership at this level offers comprehensive services.
Individual membership is designed for someone who has a desire to keep informed of trends, information, and resources regarding the Associate Movement in North America and also desires to support the efforts of NACAR and the Associate-Religious movement.
Supporting Membership in NACAR is available to organizations and groups who are also working to support and/or advance the Associate-Religious movement. Supporting members might include but are not limited to regional associate and religious groups such as the Atlantic Religious Congregation Associate Network (ARCAN), Midwest Kindred Spirits, Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), Communicators for Women Religious, and other faith based non-profit organizations.
