Who can Belong to NAVPA?
The General Membership of NAVPA consists of your colleagues and peers who are involved in the operation of veterans’ affairs programs across the country. NAVPA has three levels of membership available.
INSTITUTIONAL MEMBERSHIP ($175 Annually) – Educational or training institutions which have a VA facility code and which serve the interests and needs of the student veteran community, comprise this membership type. Examples of this type include: colleges, universities, technical, business, vocational, and eleemosynary schools. This membership may bear one (1) vote, and members may seek to hold office within the Association.
This membership type shall be awarded to only one institution under a single OPEID number, as designated by the institution’s leadership. Other branch campuses may then seek auxiliary membership, as described below:
INSTITUTIONAL AUXILIARY MEMBERSHIP ($50 Annually) – Branch campuses or extension centers of member institutions that share the same OPEID as an existing institutional member, shall comprise this membership type. This membership does not have the right to vote or hold any office in the Association, unless the primary institutional membership yields their vote and/or right to hold office.
To apply for auxiliary membership, an institution under the same OPEID must already have a paid institutional membership on file. Campus locations with a unique OPEID number are not eligible for an auxiliary membership. These institutions may seek an institutional membership with all rights therein, as described above.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP ($100 Annually) – Individuals, institutions, organizations and/or agencies which serve the interests and needs of the student veteran community but do not have a VA facility code, shall comprise this membership type. Examples of this type include, but are not limited to: veteran service organizations, counseling or therapeutic facilities, and employment agencies. This membership shall bear one (1) vote, but members shall be prohibited from holding any office within the Association.
