Affiliate Group Network Advisory Committee

The Affiliate Group Network Advisory Committee (AGNAC) plays a critical role facilitating communication and collaboration between affiliate groups and the NPCA Board and staff. AGNAC provides feedback on programs and policies that affect NPCA members and elevates ideas and best practice that foster coopera-tion across NPCA.

AGNAC participants are appointed by the Affiliate Group Network Coordinator, in consultation with affiliate group leaders. They are drawn from different categories of NPCA affiliates (country of service, geographic, cause, workplace and affinity) and serve a two-year term.
