The Value of Membership

Joining the Freedom Network USA (FNUSA) brings a host of benefits and opportunities to our members.

All members receive reduced rates for our annual conference, access to members-only training and technical assistance and professional development opportunities. General Members gain access to leadership positions, the Speakers Bureau, and voting rights in the network. However, many members find the intangible benefits of membership to be the most important. FNUSA acts as a convener, bringing individuals out of their silos to connect with colleagues and learn from experts across the country.

FNUSA also lifts up your expertise and experience to national prominence.  Whether you work for a small nonprofit service provider, a large organization with broad priorities, or are an academic working on these issues through your research, membership in the FNUSA will help you to connect with advocates around the country who face the same challenges with whom you can share your success.
