NERA Benefactors Program
"A Tribute to HMCM Manny Ratner"
Founded by SKCS Nick Marine (past National President) in 2008, the NERA Benefactor Program presents an opportunity for existing NERA Life Members to become NERA Benefactors. This program was created to recognize and honor those who continually make contributions to NERA. These additional funds enable NERA to grow as well as improve the way we operate.
More than 60% of NERA members already being Life Members who joined before 1997, monies have been exhausted without a way to re-invest. We believe that our existing Life Members are the reason we are here today and will be the ones who assist us in moving forward for another 50 years!
The NERA Benefactor Program is available to all members. The cost of membership is $550.00; this includes a NERA Life Membership.
Existing Life Members can purchase a NERA Benefactor membership for a reduced cost of $250.00.
NERA Benefactors will be presented with a special NERA Benefactor card.
A distinguished group of NERA lifetime members whose outstanding dedication and support fortifies the legacy of the Naval Enlisted Reserve Association thus inspiring future generations to absolute greatness.
In addition, NERA Benefactors’ names will also be published in every National Conference book on a dedicated page. We will also place names on our website and in Mariner Magazine when space permits.
Finally, Life Benefactors will receive special recognition from the National President at all NERA National conferences.
