NRA members are automatically members of state and regional chapters. Chapters and Regions hold conferences and training seminars around the country to keep members current and provide opportunities for growth in the rehabilitation profession.
As an NRA member, you have the opportunity to join one or more of our special interest divisions. Divisions focus on a broad range of rehabilitation issues, such as multicultural concerns, vocational evaluation, career development, independent living, and rehabilitation leadership. Other divisions represent the interests of rehabilitation counselors, rehabilitation support staff, private sector providers, and more. Many divisions produce specialty publications, and many sponsor professional development training seminars.
