Get Involved:

The number one reason to join the Novato Community Alliance is that it will benefit you. There are many more NCA advantages. You can:

  • Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your community on the most important issues.
  • Discover Great Resources. The NCA offers a variety of information designed for all householders.
  • Tap into a Network. NCA functions are opportunities to meet your neighbors and other area residents, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
  • Speak Up. NCA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change in our community.
  • Be a Role Model. By becoming a NCA member, you’ll be demonstrating the importance you place on local issues and cohesive neighborhoods. 

Membership is the fuel that powers the Novato Community Alliance. Interested parties support this unique nonprofit cause through membership, and we invite you to do the same.

Our email list is secure. Only Alliance leadership can access this list. If you want to become a member, please fill out the brief information gadget below and we'll add you to our membership.

Membership Restrictions:

Novato Community Alliance has only a single restriction to becoming a member.

As a neighborhood organization, our memberships are extended toindividuals whom currently reside or own a home within the Novato Unified School District boundaries, which includes the non-incorporated areas of Novato (e.g. Indian Valley area). Those that live outside of the defined boundary are able to join, but only as an associate member. Associate Members cannot vote on NCA mattters.

Additional Note: When you are in a household, a single payment gets your a single membership (1-vote, 1 user name and password). Typically that is all that is necessary. But if you wish to have seperate memberships, then that is allowed, but you will have to submit twice, with different information for each. This will get you two memberships (2-votes, 2 user names and passwords).
