Member Only Benefits

In addition to the resources NAPAMA offers the field, we offer our member special discounts for on services and products, peer learning opportunities, and more. View the full list of discounts and member benefits here.


Beyond the discounts and resources, we offer our members a tribe of trusted colleagues in what is often an isolated and competitive field.

We all understand the challenges of starting and running small businesses, agencies, and presenting organizations, and the overwhelm of managing the ebb and flow of the nonprofit arts. We know the right tools and connections can make it easier to navigate. NAPAMA offers our members support and confidence as they serve our field.
