Who else is a NCN Member?

Emerging Center

The Emerging Center Membership is a special introductory rate for projects in the early stages of exploring the concept of shared space and its application to their communities. All projects that have not yet opened their doors are eligible for this rate of $250 per year.


The Keystone Membership is for nonprofit centers and others who want to provide leadership support to NCN over and above your annual dues. Keystone members have access to the same benefits as organizational members and will receive special acknowledgement in NCN materials.  Annual membership dues vary, but are typically $1,000 and above.


The Individual Membership gives independent practitioners the opportunity to benefit from the Network at the annual rate of $250. Individuals receive all standard NCN member benefits.

I’m continually impressed with the depth of the NCN community. When folks ask questions to the NCN listserv, people chime in from centers across the US and Canada with great ideas, tools, and stories of their own experience. The diversity of the network means that there are answers, resources, and ideas for every challenge.

NCN is our organization’s most leveraged membership because of all the targeted resources they provide for shared spaces. We have really benefitted from participating in learning communities, workshops, webinars, one on one consulting and peer to peer information sharing. Whenever we have shared space questions, NCN is the first place we turn to for expert advice.
