Who is eligible to apply for membership?
Eligible candidates need to currently be working full-time for a celebrity as defined by NYCA for at least 18 months.
Who can attend the monthly meetings?
Meetings are open to all members. Most meetings are also open to eligible prospective members (those that meet the membership criteria but have not yet submitted applications). Members and eligible prospective members must RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least twenty-four hours before the event or earlier when requested.
Prospective members are welcome to attend a maximum of two meetings before joining NYCA. If you are a prospective member, you must speak to someone on the NYCA Membership Board to ascertain basic eligibility before meeting admission is granted. Please allow at least two weeks prior to the meeting for this contact to take place.
I am planning on attending a meeting. Can I bring a friend?
You may only invite someone who is eligible for membership in his or her own right. All prospective members must speak to someone on the NYCA Membership Board before meeting admission is granted. Please allow at least two weeks prior to the meeting for this contact to take place.
What about confidentiality?
Confidentiality and right-to-privacy are of the utmost importance to NYCA. All prospective members are required to sign a non-disclosure confidentiality agreement before they are allowed into any meeting.
Attendees are forbidden to use any confidential information for personal benefit or that of others. The NYCA database is carefully monitored and protected.
When can I join?
Applications for membership can be submitted throughout the year. The Board meets approximately every six weeks and applications are reviewed at each meeting. Applicants are notified of their status shortly thereafter.
Everybody knows who my celebrity is. Do I still need to fill out an application?
Yes. All applicants must fully complete an application. No exceptions are made. Incomplete applications will be returned.
What else do I need to submit with my application?
Attached to your application, you must include: your resume, four business references with respective addresses, phone numbers and email, a check covering the $25 non-refundable application fee, a bio of your current celebrity employer, copies of national/international press coverage of your celebrity employer, a completed NYCA Member Database Form and a signed NYCA Non-Disclosure Confidentiality Agreement. Please note, if you are accepted into NYCA your application fee will be applied toward your first year’s membership dues (currently $150).
Who is eligible for the Job Referral Service?
This service is only available to members in good standing.
