The CNDA offers sliding scale membership rates for newly licensed doctors. If you are applying for Regular Membership, please be sure to select the year in which you were licensed in California. Upon completing your application, you will receive an email indicating that the CNDA has received your application and that you are officially a CNDA member. Your membership is valid from one year from your application.

New members receive a welcome email with information on accessing your CNDA membership account, and new Regular Members will be mailed a welcome packet with helpful practice documents. All members can immediately access online members benefits (members only pages, including access to A Guide to Practicing Naturopathic Medicine in California and the member forum, and CE discounts) upon completing the application.

NOTE: Only sign up for Regular Membership if you hold an active California license and are currently practicing in California. Otherwise, you can select Associate or Out-of-State Membership. If you are unsure which membership type you qualify for, please call Frances at the home office (310) 670-8100 before filling out your membership application.
