Completion of the annual Directory allows you to remain on the active email list. However, this does not get you all the benefits of being an active NCAMA Member.

The success of NCAMA is due to YOUR involvement in meetings, training, events, and steering committee assistance. It’s highly recommended that members get involved with the planning, promoting, and implementing of meetings and events. Request for agenda items are sent out two weeks prior to the meeting and agendas are sent out one week prior. A no-host lunch is held nearby after the meeting.

· Critical Incident Debriefing
· California Aquatic Management School
· Facility Audits

· Work Culture


Meeting locations rotate between the different membership agencies. Anyone is welcome to host a meeting. If you are interested in hosting, contact the steering committee. For any questions, please refer to the Steering Committee Members Section for contact information.
