Membership of the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans is opened to ALL Nigerian Christians in the US, wherever they may be located.

As a member, you are part of a powerful voice of Nigerian-Americans ensuring that we are a notable part of the American society and building our influence through our elected government officials from the local, county to state and federal government levels.

The association exists to raise our voice in this country and influence events here in the US, and in Nigeria from here, in every significant term. Already this impact is being made, and testified to by many including a member of the US Congress.

Besides, being the pre-eminent voice of our people and their immigrant communities here, CANAN will also, in the further implementation of its vision and mission statements, organise a host of events and programs designed specifically to benefit members. Some of this will include regular interaction with top government officials/prominent dignataries both here and in Nigeria, annual dinners, national essay competitions, pro bono legal services, free medical clinics etc.
