"When I found the International Nanny Association (INA) through a google search, it was a God send. I felt like I was home, I found my tribe. It was so overwhelming because I felt like I had been in isolation for over 17 years as a nanny. Without a doubt, being a member of the INA has been one of the best choices I’ve made for the advancement of my career."

Angela Johnson Sutherland

"I love being a member of the INA because it has provided me with a great sense of comradery and a wealth of educational opportunities when running my own nanny agency. The INA is a fantastic organization that gives nanny industry professionals the opportunity to grow and learn from each other in a supportive and encouraging environment."

With access to professional resources, annual conferences, and networking groups, I consider the INA an invaluable partner.
