INA Membership Categories

INA membership is open to those who are involved with the in-home child care industry including nannies, nanny employers, nanny placement agency owners (and staff), nanny educators and providers of special services related to the nanny industry. INA offers four types of membership categories, with different dues and benefits. Review the membership categories below to determine which category is right for you. 

**Please Note: Organizations and agencies can become MEMBERS of our association. However, membership in the INA does NOT certify, credential or accredit them in any way through INA. The INA does not have a certification for agencies. Membership will in no way help individuals obtain a visa to the USA – saying so is false and anyone so doing will be removed from the INA membership. INA indemnifies itself from any legal proceedings based on a member’s wrong doing. Organizations and agencies are prohibited from awarding certificates to any individual who has completed the INA Nanny Basic Skills Assessment or INA Nanny Credential Exam. Completing either exam does NOT provide any individual with automatic membership to INA.
