NENA Member Benefits
Welcome New or Prospective ENs
The National Employment Network Association (NENA) was launched by leading employment networks who know what you want from an association — because we want it too! We’re here to give you what you need to succeed:
• time-saving resources
• advocacy for Ticket Program improvements
• news & analysis of evolving Ticket Program
Personal networking with successful ENs is one of the many advantages of being a NENA full member. Also, NENA is developing new resources and educational programs to help your organization.
NENA created a special new membership category — Provisional — to help organizations that desire to become ENs and want help completing the RFP or developing their EN operations.
Whether you’re a new EN, a prospective EN or a just-getting-active EN, it’s time to sign up and ramp up. Become a NENA full member now and receive NENA resources for every step of the process.
Thank you for being a NENA Full Member, Associate or Ticket Partner!
Members can LOGIN HERE or on the right sidebar to access your Dashboard launch point to exclusive NENA benefits. NENA will soon have a community forum where NENA members can ask questions and share their experience and solutions. Come back often!

As a NENA FUll Member, Associate or Ticket Partner, you have the privilege to serve on Committees that advocate for EN, VR and consumer needs with Ticket Program leaders at SSA, the Operations Support Manager (Maximus) and others. It’s the ultimate Ticket networking opportunity! You also develop programs and projects serving NENA members. Committee Signup is your place to learn about the Committees and sign up to serve. NENA recommends starting with one Committee.
NENA Membership Types
Full Member $150: State VR Agencies or ENs begin with a single Membership. This provides all member resources, services, discounts and privileges for one person, including full voting rights in all official NENA meetings, the right to seek election to the NENA Board or to serve as an appointed Board member. Joining now makes you a Member for 12 months. One Full Membership per organization with a unique DUNS.
Associate $50: VR Agencies or ENs who already have a Full Member can purchase Associate status for key employees or contractors to ensure their convenient access to all NENA website resources and all discounts. Joining now provides an Associate membership for 12 months, or until the full Membership expires. There is no limit to the number of Associates an organization can have. Associates enjoy most member resources and services, with the exception of voting and Board membership privileges.
Provisional $150: Provisional members are in the process of applying to become employment networks, and enjoy all the resources available to Full Members to assist them with business planning and completing the request for quote. After a Provisional member has an approved blanket purchase agreement with SSA, she/he notifies NENA and is converted to a Full Member with a vote in NENA Board elections, and can serve on the NENA Board and committees.
Ticket Partner $150: Ticket Partners are other stakeholders of Social Security disability programs (not ENs or State VR agencies) who have a positive interest in supporting the goals and success of the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program. The NENA Bylaws require that all Board members are ENs or State VR agencies, but Ticket Partners have access to all other member resources, services, discounts and privileges of Membership. Ticket Partners must be reviewed and approved by the NENA Board.
NENA’s annual Form 990 to the IRS is available for Members to view.
