NCDA has from time to time formed working relationships with various associations, corporations and organizations in other countries. In general, this type of activity is encouraged. These relationships often can be divided into three categories and are detailed in the International Collaboration policy:
One is a collaboration which may be a specific limited time project, or ongoing relationship (PART A).
The second is the establishment of an NCDA International Affiliate Organization (IA) (PART B).
The third is the maintenance of an NCDA International Affiliate status (PART C).
