Support the Confederation

During this trying time of pandemic and social distancing, to maintain our community presence and fulfill our mission to inform, educate, and facilitate conversation and community interaction, the NAHC needs paid members!

The annual $30 assessment covers the administrative costs of our mission to:
- Serve as an advocate for and a voice of the people who call the Naperville area their home;
- Create an awareness of residents' needs by developing and maintaining relationships with all levels of government -national, state, city, counties, townships, and school and park districts;
- Support member associations with their organizational and program needs - facilitating an interchange of ideas, resources, and information between and among homeowners associations;
- Build, through a cooperative effort, a community dedicated to the enhancement of our property;
- Provide, through regular meetings, special events such as candidate and issue forums, our newsletter and website, a forum for homeowner concerns and interests.

Dues checks can be sent to:
Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation, Inc.
PO Box 5245
Naperville, Illinois 60567-5245

To reduce the overhead associated with dues collection, and to provide financial certainty (and a bonus) to our loyal members, the Confederation Board has established a dues pre-payment option. Members can opt to buy in at this year’s rates ($30 for association, $10 for individual members), or they can lock in their membership for three years, with the payment for the third year discounted by 50% ($75 for associations, $25 for individuals).

By taking advantage of the three year plan, members are able to take advantage of current rates, reduce the costs of writing and mailing checks, and get a bargain rate to boot.

To get an invoice for either one or three years, email us at naperahc@gmail.com . If your Association is not currently a Confederation member, or if there have been significant changes in your association's contacts, download and complete the Membership Application and send it to us along with your dues.
Thanks for your help and thanks for being part of the NAHC!
