Message From The President

Dear NACA Members,

Your board has been busy, moving forward and making changes that will bring each of you more benefits and resources while at the same time make NACA a stronger presence in the animal care and control profession.

Our profession is constantly growing and changing to keep up with the demands placed on us all each day. As your national voice, we too must adapt to the current needs of our membership so over the next few months you will notice many changes within NACA. Please be patient, there may be a few bumps in the road as we work hard to provide you with the very best organization that lives up to the high standards you deserve!

Currently we are making some improvements to our membership software and policy. All individual memberships will now expire on your anniversary date. We originally had set all memberships to expire on December 31 of each year, but after hearing from many of you, we have decided it is in your best interest to have membership expire 1 year from the date you sign up. If this improvement causes you any problem or concerns, please contact our executive office at naca@nacanet.org.

As I mentioned above, please keep an eye out for as we bring you many new benefits, services, and what is shaping up to be, a very exciting conference and training symposium in Orlando, Florida.

Misha Goodman, President
National Animal Care and Control Association
