In terms of volunteering (as part of the membership), what did you do (if I may ask)? How much of your time did it take? I'm really concerned about making an agreement I might not be able to adhere to, time-wise -- especially if it meant traveling to Jacksonville!!

LOL in addition to hearing some of the testimonies ( I am in Jacksonville), there was a lady that stood up and said I have been working with different couselors since 2005. Well needless to say, the facilitator quickly changed the subject and made her sit down......LOL And as indicated before, 3/4 of the crowd left when we were given a 15 minute break.

I'm curious about this, too. I don't live four hours from their office, but I'm wondering how time consuming this commitment might be and how flexible they are with when you can put in this time. I read through their web site and got the impression that initiating an email campaign to contact legislators about a housing related issue might be a type of activity they are looking for. It also says you can assist others in the NACA process, so that is something you could possibly do in your own local area instead of traveling to their office. I wonder if referring someone to the program would count as an activity? I also read that when you attend the workshop, you will hear testimonials from people who have bought homes with NACA. Maybe giving one of these testimonials would be considered an activity?
I guess this is an example of the type of questions that would be asked at the workshop that we have to attend as the first step in their process.

What kind of time commitment were they asking for? I know they want you to volunteer (to help others in similar situations, I suppose) and that NACA grew out of a union.

I do believe the length of time it takes for each one varies from situation to situation. Everyone has a different situation. It also depends on you, and how soon you want something and how hard you are willing to fight to get it. I asked about the length of time also, and was told that, it can take a month or years. I was given and example that one woman closed in 17 days last month. I was told it depends on how organize you are and submit all the paperwork to them. I also believe that they are truly busy and can slack at times because since I left the workshop 3 weeks ago I haven't received any calls from anyone as planned, and when I called I was told to call back, and I'm letting it slide because i'm not really serious about putting in the time and getting them all the documents they need otherwise I would have been calling every second.
