Member Benefits

Four Free Webinars Each Year

Your membership includes four complimentary continuing education webinars each year. These “Professional Enrichment Webinars,”  offered only to members and eligible for continuing education credit, will be offered live and archived in recorded form. At the end of the year, these webinars will convert to paid webinars available to anyone for a fee.

Coffee Chats and Virtual Special Interest Groups

Every other month, members are invited to  join an informal “coffee chat” about a specific subject. A facilitator leads an interactive conversation with participants, allowing them to ask questions and receive answers from colleagues across the country. In addition, virtual interest groups allow members with similar interests and goals to work together to share ideas.

Exclusive Access to Liability Insurance Designed Specifically for Fiduciaries

The professional fiduciary liability insurance program developed jointly by NGA, Dominion Insurance, and underwriters at Lloyd’s of London, is available only to NGA members. The coverage offers features important to practicing guardians and fiduciaries, and NGA was able to negotiate a number of key coverage enhancements to add real value for its membership. Additional special discounts that could total as much as 15% off the premium are available to NGA members who also hold membership in an affiliate state guardianship association, or are a National Certified Guardian (NCG) or a National Master Guardian (NMG).

This insurance coverage is available only to NGA members through an exclusive arrangement with Dominion Insurance. Members can learn more by reviewing documents in the Members Only Section of this website.

Participate in the NGA Listserv

Perhaps the most popular benefit of membership, the NGA listserv brings networking right to your desktop with an immediacy and efficiency that makes information exchange more relevant. Currently more than 400 people now share in this optional network of member-to-member communications. You can only access this kind of information as a member of NGA.

Attend the National Conference on Guardianship and Access Other Education for Less

It doesn’t take a mathematician to see that the savings for conference and webinar registrations are a great payback on your dues investment. Last year, individual members saved as much as $145 on registration for the National Conference on Guardianship. Organization members can apply the member discount on all employee registrations for even greater savings.

Receive Discounts on Publications

With guardianship-specific publications available only through NGA, your member discount adds up with each purchase. Save when you purchase study guides for certification exams, order brochures for your practice, catch up on the legal and legislative developments impacting guardianship, and more!

Read The National Guardian

The NGA newsletter contains information about the organization and also about changes in guardianship laws and regulations, national trends in guardianship, updates to help you perform at your peak, contacts within the profession, activities among guardians throughout the country, and more. The newsletter is delivered by email only to people in the NGA member database.

Use NGA Ethics Forum

The Ethics Forum allows members to confidentially seek advice on practice issues that have ethical implications. With so much attention from the media and regulators focused on guardianship, the Ethics Forum is becoming an invaluable tool as members seek privacy when they need advice on tough decisions.

Enter the Portal to the “Members Only” Section of the NGA Website

Your membership brings you the password to enter this special area of the website where resources are available to help you and information is stored that is for members’ eyes only. Features include archived issues of The National Guardian and the annual Legal and Legislative Review, a searchable member database, access to NGA’s policies and annual work plan, and more.
