NCPC Membership for Presenters

Presenting organizations must meet the following criteria:

        • Proof of 501c3 status
        • Presenting at least 3 events featuring professional touring artists/companies per year
        • Presentation of cultural-based programming being among the organization's primary purposes

NCPC Membership for Non-Presenters

Agents, independent artists, vendors, and industry-related service providers are invited to join, too!

These "non-presenter" members play a crucial role in the successful functioning of our organization. They are instrumental in maintaining the thriving cultural ecosystem of our state, and benefit from the opportunities for communication and face-to-face interaction provided by NCPC. Agents, artists, vendors, and service providers have access to NCPC's private listserv and are invited to all association meetings and events, except for block booking meetings.
