ORGANIZATIONS: After purchasing an organization membership, you will be contacted by someone from NORCODA to gather the name and location of your organization, as well as the names and contact information for your participating members for our membership records.


NORCODA members participate in STEM and community events, drone meetups, aerospace industry events, and more. We are educating the public about the benefits of drones, and we are training the next generation of pilots and drone data experts. 

For a current list of upcoming events, see our events page and Facebook.

If you are looking for a way to support new pilots and give back to the community, we will get you involved. Throughout the year we have opportunities to volunteer with local students and community education programs as well as our special committees.
