About the Network of Community Advisors

The Network of Community Advisors (NOCA) is a primary advisory body to the PRCHN ("the Center"). NOCA's role is to provide guidance and leadership to carry out the goals and objectives of the Center, to provide annual feedback on the progress of the Center, and to bring current issues in area neighborhoods to the attention of the Center. Learn more about NOCA's Governing Guidelines 

NOCA members work side-by-side with the Center leadership and staff to:

  • define research questions,
  • determine how to best answer the questions, and
  • decide how to spread or act on the findings.

NOCA is comprised of two membership levels. An "Advising Partner" is a member who serves on NOCA and serves on a core sub-committee and/or research working group. An "Advisor" is a member who serves on NOCA but does not also serve on a sub-committee and/or research working group.
