Membership Record Services
The NAMA office provides all aspects of membership record keeping services to all chapters. These services include billing, new member processing, chapter summaries, membership evaluation summaries and other services and database management.
Chapter officers may receive forms to assist them in their duties. Available forms include, but are not limited to, awards programs, membership records, financial data and chapter planning. Most of these are sent to chapter officers at the appropriate times. Most are also available on the website as Resources under the “Leaders” tab.
All chapters may obtain 2 sets of mailing address labels per month from the NAMA office for chapter purposes at no cost*. These labels are available in different forms from simple printouts to computer disc format (chapter use only). NAMA can also provide an excel spreadshet of the same information.
(*There is no cost to chapters when regular mail is used. The cost for overnight and rush orders will be billed to the chapter. Labels for non-chapter usage are $0.20 each when ordered by members and $0.30 each when ordered by non-members, if approved by the NAMA EVP/CEO.)
The NAMA office can send mailings to your chapter members to promote upcoming chapter events. The chapter will be invoiced for postage expenses.
National NAMA e-News
Submit your upcoming events to Debbie Brummel at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, be sure to submit photos and write-ups of past meetings for chapter promotion. A template to make this easier is located under “Leader Resources.”
Chapter Name Badges
Special NAMA name badges may be obtained through the national office for use at chapter meetings or special events. These badges may be imprinted with the NAMA logo, chapter information, or special event designs. These badges come with a pin/clip for repeated use.
Staff Visits/Leadership Training
The NAMA staff is available to visit with your leaders and assist with association management, leader development and training, and NAMA program training. At least three weeks advanced notice is needed to make travel arrangements.

Chapter Web Pages/Sites
NAMA can create a chapter web page for you to list information on your upcoming chapter events, past events or anything else you’d like to include. The web pages are part of the NAMA web site and are maintained by the NAMA staff. Any information you would like to have for your chapters’ pages can be sent to Jan Cichello at email@example.com. You are also welcome to create your own web site. If you choose to create your own site, the chapter is responsible for maintaining that site.
