  • Read past issues of the NIP Quarterly

  • Access mentoring programs
  • Search job opportunities in a Career Center
  • Participate in an online discussion on a variety of topics
  • Search for other members

You will also be able to manage your own account.   You can create a profile and determine what is available for other members to see, or keep tabs on your membership and renew online.  Take a look at the eligibility requirements, fees, and membership types to find out what works best for you.
