Using INA Logos
“International Nanny Association” name
The International Nanny Association has been in existence since 1985 and is an easily recognized not for profit company in the in-home childcare industry. Use of this name for any purpose other than to promote and support the INA will be taken seriously and legal action will be taken.
This logo can be used as a means to promote and support the INA. We ask that when you use this logo in this manner, you link to the INA website – nanny.org.
INA Member Logo
All current INA Members can use the INA logo in personal biographies, business cards, personal social media, biography sections of websites. When your membership lapses however, the logo must be removed.
Placement Agency, Educator, Industry Service Providers, Online Recruiting Platforms, and Premium INA Members can also use the logo on their business website, company social media, certificates of completion (see note below about certificates, and any other business advertising.
Educators who wish to put the INA Member Logo on Certificate of Completions, must have the certificate approved by the INA office before use. The office will confirm that the design clearly shows that it is the company that is the INA Member, not the individual receiving the Certificate of Completion.
The use of the INA Member Logo on personalized products such as T-Shirts, cups, hats, tote bags, etc, must be approved by the INA Board of Directors through a limited license agreement. If you are interested in this, please contact the INA office.
You must remove the INA Member Logo from all places if you are no longer a member due to lapsed membership or removal.
INA Credential Exam Logos
Only individuals who have passed the INA Nanny Credential Exam can use the NCE Logo. Only those who have passed the INA NCS Credential Exam are allowed to use the NCSCE Logo. The images can be used in any way the INA Credentialed individual would like but they cannot make money on it’s use.
INA Service Award Pin Logo
Only individuals who have received a Service Award Pin in the year denomination they received it in are allowed to use these images. The images can be used in any way the individual would like but they cannot make money on it’s use.
INA Nanny of the Year Logo
Only individuals who have been nominated for the INA Nanny of the Year can use the INA NOTY Nominee logo. Only individuals who have received the INA Nanny of the Year can use the Nanny of the Year Logo for the year they received the award. The images can be used in any way the individual would like but they cannot make money on it’s use.
The phrase “Nanny of the Year” is a general term that the INA has used to describe an award we have given for more than 30 years. Many other organizations and companies use the phrase “Nanny of the Year” to recognize the achievements of a nanny in their community. The INA celebrates these nannies and wishes to support those individuals in any way we can. Reach out to the INA office at email@example.com for more information on how we can support them.
Unfortunately, in the past there has been some confusion around the INA’s use of the trademark symbol in reference to this award. We wish to clarify that the INA’s common law trademark is on the phrase “INA Nanny of the Year™️” and “INA NOTY™️”.
We ask that to avoid confusion in this matter, companies and organizations that use the phrase “Nanny of the Year” clarify that their award is not associated with the INA Nanny of the Year program.
INA Ambassador Logo
Only those who are currently INA Ambassadors can use the Ambassador Logo. The image can be used in any way they would like but they cannot make money on it’s use.
