Friends of NICCA


Established in 2003, the Friends of NICCA program was designed to provide ongoing financial support for the association by allowing Nebraska Independent Crop Consultant Association allied members to support the organization with an annual financial sponsorship. Prior to the implementation of the Friends program, allied members were routinely asked to sponsor various aspects of the association's activities including meals at conventions, conference speakers, social event activities and more. Many allied members felt this process was burdensome and hard to budget for on a regular basis. The Friends program was created with the understanding that NICCA allied members would make an annual sponsorship to NICCA and not be asked to support the organization for other activities. The program has been very well received.

To see a list of our current Friends of NICCA visit the Friends of NICCA page.

If you are interested in becoming a friend of NICCA please download the application here and mail it to NICCA, PO BOX 412, Kearney NE 68848-0412
