Types of Membership

**CNDA membership (if just starting in California straight out of school) is $100 the first year, $200 the second, $300 the third and $400 the fourth year and beyond. Our automatic renewal reminder email does NOT reflect this sequential stepping process, but the system does - this means that when you renew, your reminder email will give your previous year's rate even though you now owe the new higher rate until you are at the $400 per year rate.

Standard Membership

Eligibility: Naturopathic doctors that hold a degree from an accredited naturopathic medical school with an active ND License may apply. Dues depend on your year of licensing. Newly licensed CA doctors are offered membership at a sliding scale:

  • $100 per year or $8.33/month for the first year from your license date. 
  • $200 per year or $16.67/month for the second year from your license date. 
  • $300 per year or $25/month for the third year from your license date. 
  • $400 per year or $33.33/month for the fourth year from your license date and beyond. 

For example, if you were licensed in January of 2020 and then joined the CNDA in May of 2021, you would be paying $200 per year or $16.67/ month for one year. Then, in May of 2022 you would pay $300 or $25/ month.

Naturopathic Advocates

The CNDA is working to educate state legislative and insurance agencies as well as the public on the benefits of naturopathic medicine. We will continue to build relationships in the naturopathic community in an effort to optimize the impact of the naturopathic doctors in our state.
