join the community

The NDIA Community forms the strong, growing core of digital inclusion work in the United States. We are seasoned experts, yet extremely welcoming – diverse and inclusive. We are digital inclusion practitioners, advocates, and supporters working with our communities to advance digital equity.

We welcome new members, including nonprofits and government entities who wish to identify as NDIA Affiliates. We also invite Corporate Supporters to join our community — learn from on-the-ground customer experiences, get recommendations from the community, show your support for digital inclusion, and share how you’re committed to building digital equity.

          Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

            Can I join NDIA for free?

            NDIA membership is free for Affiliates and Friends! Affiliates are nonprofit or government entities that are based in the US, DC or territories that offer digital inclusion programming or advocate for digital equity. Friends are individuals or students working or volunteering at a US international nonprofit or government agency, but their organization is not an NDIA member. 

            How many emails (subscriptions) can sign up for the listserv per organization?

            Affiliate and Affiliate+ members have unlimited subscription spots. Corporate supporters have four spots, with the option to add an additional seat for a $500 annual fee. Friends have one subscription spot for the community listserv.

            Can I update the email I wish to receive newsletter and listserv communications?

            Yes, you can update your email at any time. To do so, email [email protected] with the new email that you’d like to receive newsletter and listserv communications. 

            I’m getting too many listserv emails. Can I change my subscription type?

            Yes! You can switch your subscription preferences to the best option for you, at any time. You can switch to: “digest”, in which you will receive one email daily that contains up to 25 messages, or “abridged” – in which you will receive one email daily that contains up to summaries of 150 messages. You can update your subscription type here

            Where do I find information on community calls?

            Are community calls recorded?

            No, community calls are not recorded. Community calls are intended to be a safe space for practitioners to be candid about their experiences. However, we share resources shared during the call to those that have registered.
