All Nishtar graduates (Or those who studied at Nishtar at any point) who reside in USA or Canada are entitled to a free registration. This will help you to stay tuned regarding any news, updates and help you to stay in touch with fellow Nishtarians to a limited extent. However, we recommend formal membership to take full advantage of mutual networking.
Formal membership allows you to access the entire database of fellow Nishtarians and use all available resources. You will be able to attend all the fun meetings and social gatherings and will be able to contribute towards helping other Nishtarians. At the same time you will be able to avail help and advice from more senior members. Formal Membership is offered in three categories:
Free Annual Membership: Offered to Nishtarians applying for residency or in residency or training fellowship. Proof of such qualification is required.
Paid Annual Membership: All Nishtarians in USA or Canada who have completed their training. The current annual membership fee is $50. The membership fee is subject to change.
Paid Lifetime Membership: You have the option of paying a onetime fee of$500 to become a lifetime member of NANA. In the long run, this is the most cost saving option.

How to become a member of the Advisory Committee (AC) Executive Committee (EC) or an Alumni Official (AO)
If you studied at Nishtar Medical College at any time during your life (even if you graduated from a different medical college, or even left the medical profession altogether) and currently reside in North America (USA or Canada), you are eligible to become a member of NANA
Once you have been a member of NANA in good standing, and feel enthusiastic about helping fellow Nishtarians, you can step forward and write to us about your intentions. Once approved by the executive committee, you can become an the Advisory committee member and participate in decision making process. It is a non-binding commitment and you can choose to take a break if you feel overwhelmed by other responsibilities and can re-join at a later date.
If you are interested in becoming an Alumni official, you can, then, make your intentions known and after the approval of the EC, you can start as the treasurer and can progress to Secretary and President.
As opposed to an AC member, the commitment as an Alumni official (AO) is binding. By becoming an (AO), you agree to spend a certain amount of time to fulfill your obligations during your tenure. If you are afraid that you may not have adequate time to meet the obligations of an AO, you should not commit to become an AO.
Once you become an AO, you may become a member of Executive Committee (EC) that consists of President, President Elect, immediate past president, Secretary and Treasurer.
