The North American Conference of Associates and Religious is a membership organization that acts as a catalyst to serve, empower and promote the Associate-Religious relationship. NACAR remains the only professional organization to support and serve associates and vowed members as associates proclaim their call to live the charism of their religious communities.

The purpose of NACAR is to promote and support leadership within the associate movement. To further this purpose, NACAR strives to identify and explore issues relevant to the Associate/Religious relationship; to serve as a clearing-house for sharing of resources and talents especially for Associate leadership and spiritual growth; to encourage networking and mutual support among and between Associates and Associate communities; and to provide a vision for the future of the Associate way of life.

Individual membership is designed for someone who has a desire to keep informed of trends, information, and resources regarding the Associate Movement in North America and also desires to support the efforts of NACAR and the Associate-Religious movement.
