NODA Networks serve as the foundation of the Association in that they attempt to meet the many needs of our members.

Each Network represents an opportunity for members to affiliate with a group in which they have personal or institutional interest. Members may align with several Networks and are encouraged to pursue leadership roles within the Network structure.

The identified functions of each NODA Network help orientation professionals cooperatively and collaboratively become informed and responsive to present and future interests of new college students and their institutions. In an on-going process, Networks conduct surveys, compile information directories, apprise members of publications, resources, and conferences which specifically address needs of the identified students or institutional group. Participants are encouraged to contribute their expertise by presenting research and other applied practice information sessions at regional and national conferences and to contribute topic specific articles to the NODA Review.
