Benefits of Affiliation: The National Rehabilitation Association


Jones, Evan, The Journal of Rehabilitation


How many times have you heard a coworker or colleague comment, "I belong to NRA but I don't know what I'm getting for my membership dues," or "I'm thinking of joining NRA but how does it relate to me?" Oftentimes persons simply don't realize the wealth of benefits associated with NRA membership. Of equal import are the many ways members can contribute directly to the field of rehabilitation, while connecting more closely with other committed professionals across the country.

The field of rehabilitation has over the years evolved to encompass many specializations. This is in part due to the development and refinement of medical technologies proving as catalysts for the rehabilitation profession to develop accordingly. Mindful of change, the National Rehabilitation Association offers comprehensive benefits designed to respond to the needs and interests of wide ranging subspecialties within the field:

* Journal of Rehabilitation

* Publications

* Contemporary Rehab Magazine

* Legislative Representation

* Leadership and Management Opportunity

* Division Affiliation

* State and Regional Chapters

* Annual Training Conference and Exhibit

* National Employment Network

* Awards Program

* Financial Services and Insurance

Journal of Rehabilitation

Through such contribution research is disseminated efficiently across the country and world.

Publications

In addition to the Journal, a variety of special publications and monographs are offered to association members. One of the more popular is the annual Mary Switzer Seminar Monograph. Whenever possible, NRA collaborates with publishers and editors to arrange discounted rates for its members.

* Federal funding information

* Congressional highlights

* National and Regional Association events

* Special activity calendar

* Conference and training schedules

NRA represents its members by providing congressional testimony related to disability, vocational and rehabilitation policy. It also has an extensive legislative volunteer telephone/fax tree which communicates time sensitive information across the country.
