BECOME A NETWORK AFFILIATE
Farms, organizations, and businesses are invited to support the work of the National Organic Coalition by joining NOC as a Network Affiliate. We need your support to continue our work to ensure organic integrity. We will keep you informed and ask for your input to inform our work on organic issues at USDA, NOP, NOSB, other agencies (such as EPA) as well as in Congress and the courts.
NOC hopes to increase its outreach to organizations interested in federal organic food policy by building a network of information and action.
NOC Network Affiliates WILL:
Be invited to our semi-annual “pre-NOSB” meetings
Gain access to farmer scholarship fund for NOSB meetings
Get regular updates on organic policy issues
Receive action alert templates to create alerts to share with your constituency
Receive draft comments for urgent issues
Have access to NOC staff expertise and organic policy archive
Be invited to participate in organic policy discussions and share information via quarterly conference calls
Provide input into our Farm Bill priorities
Have the opportunity to “sign on” to NOC positions (on an issue-by-issue basis)
NOC Network Affiliates WILL NOT:
Be represented by NOC in lobbying activities with the Administration or on Capitol Hill
Be required to agree with all NOC positions
Be automatically listed as supporters of NOC positions (only when asked on a issue-by-issue basis)
Be full “members” of NOC with voting rights
*Recommended contribution levels for NOC Network Affiliates:
Non-Profit: $500 - $1,000
Business: $1,000 - $10,000
We encourage contributions at higher levels to support our work to advance organic integrity. Our philosophy is that no one should be excluded from participation on the basis of ability to pay. Please contact us directly if you would like to become a Network Affiliate, but cannot meet these guidelines.
