The membership fee is $30 and primarily covers expenses, such as the “NCHEA News,” the “Legislative Alerts,” and reduced registration fees at the Conference.

Who leads the NCHEA?
All officers and other leaders serve as volunteers. They do not receive any salary for their duties. The leadership would ask for your prayers as they work to serve you.
What is the Conference & Curriculum Fair?
The annual Conference and Curriculum Fair (C&CF) is a tremendous opportunity for you to attend your choice of more than 40 speakers and workshops and to research curriculum options and other educational materials from a large number of vendors. The C&CF is designed to address the interests and needs of a wide spectrum of attendees, from those considering homeschooling to the veteran with senior high school students. Workshops are continuing and professional education for home educators.
The registration fee funds the event as well as covering annual administrative costs and expenses to monitor legislation.
Does NCHEA monitor the Unicameral and the U.S. Congress?
The NCHEA actively monitors the Nebraska Unicameral for legislation that may affect parental rights or homeschooling. The NCHEA provides members with a synopsis of proposed legislation and its potential impact on parental and homeschooling rights. NCHEA officers present testimony before the Nebraska legislature on behalf of member families.
A national alert network keeps leaders of state homeschool organizations aware of what is happening in Washington, D.C. and in all 50 state governments. NCHEA leadership is part of this national network.
What are Legislative Alerts?
Legislative Alerts are sent out to members when we feel it is important that they contact their legislators. We use the NCHEA News, the U.S mail, or e-mail depending on the urgency of the situation.

What if my address changes?
Postage is an ever-increasing area of cost. In order to make effective use of the funds God has provided, the NCHEA utilizes bulk mailing in the delivery of the “NCHEA News.” It is very important that you inform the NCHEA of an address change because bulk mail is not forwarded. Please use our Change of Address form.
