* NCA member access only


As a membership organization, we depend upon the knowledge, skills and experience of our member volunteers. You teach webinars, volunteer for our Day of Service, power NCA committees — and more.

The NCA is proud to recognize exceptional member contributions with the following honors:

Volunteer of the Year

Honorary Lifetime Member

Lifetime Achievement Award


Recipients are selected by committee on the basis of their contributions to the coffee industry and the organization. Nominees must be active members who have consistently demonstrated the NCA’s core values of integrity, excellence, commitment to sustainability, and collaboration. 

We encourage all of our members members to nominate their colleagues for the recognition they've earned. 

Please note that all applications are due before Sept. 15 for the following year. 

And to all of our volunteers: Thank you. We couldn’t do this without you.
