NACD offers one membership category to chemical distributors and three (3) affiliate categories to their industry partners. Each provides access to leaders in chemical distribution, access to customers as well as educational programming and networking with industry leaders, peers, and customers.

Distributor Members: NACD's primary members are chemical distribution companies that take title to and resell chemical products as a significant part of their business.

Global Distribution Partners: International distribution companies who are involved in chemical distribution and who take title to products but who do not have fixed facilities in the U.S.

Chemical Handler Affiliates: Chemical handlers whose primary function excludes the supply, manufacturing or distribution of chemicals, including public warehouses, recyclers, and carriers are eligible to join NACD's Chemical Handler Affiliate program. Chemical Handler Affiliates, like NACD members, are required to comply with Responsible Distribution.

Chemical Supplier Affiliates: Chemical supplier/manufacturer companies that do not qualify for NACD membership and are not equipment/service providers are eligible to join NACD's Chemical Supplier Affiliate program.

Non-Chemical Handler Affiliates: Service provider companies that do not handle chemicals but supply equipment and/or services to the chemical distribution industry are eligible to join the Non-Chemical Handler Affiliate program.
