What Members are Saying
"I try to send as many staff as I can to NHSA conferences and Institutes. They can get training in a wider range of content areas there than we can get in the region or state. It is critical they hear from so many national experts. The discount we receive as an NHSA member means I can send more staff."
"NHSA membership provides a unique opportunity to participate in making public policy that will affect a generation of Americans. As an NHSA member, I get up-to-the-minute information about what is happening on Capitol Hill and can participate in activities that help protect my program and the children and families in my community."
