NCA Staff Branding Resources
Document templates, deep resources, and how-tos designed to help NCA staff live our brand
You’re already a pro at living our brand! From interviews through orientation through your everyday interaction with our members and supporters, you and everyone else here on the NCA team have internalized our values. You’ve learned (or are learning!) to talk the talk through our messaging. But many still want to know: how can we make our public-facing documents, like PowerPoint presentations, agendas, and one-pagers look like the high-quality, attractively branded NCA pieces they should be?
It’s easier than you think to make beautiful, branded NCA documents. Here are some templates and other resources you can use to make sure your slide decks and handouts meet our brand standards, and start on your path to becoming an NCA brand superuser!
NCA Brand Guidelines
Here’s a great place to start. In NCA’s Brand Guidelines, you’ll learn how to use our logo, define our color palette, select photos, and apply “flair” and other graphic elements. On page 53, it also has our messaging info in case you need a refresher.
NCA Slide Deck Template
If you’re giving a presentation on behalf of NCA, here’s your starting point. Use this branded 16:9 PowerPoint template to get your point across and use NCA’s branding consistently.
NCA Document Template
Whether it’s for a meeting agenda, a simple handout, or other simple document needs, this Word template makes NCA branding consistency come easy.
Just make sure to follow the preset styles and use the heading levels logically (e.g., everything that’s heading style 3 is a subcategory of the heading style 2 that’s directly above it!).
Our BrandFolder is the place for both NCA staff and our members to locate all of our public awareness resources and our brand assets, including appropriate NCA logos and badges for Accredited Members and Chapters. Inside, you’ll find logos, colors, stock images, and public awareness campaign information
Our staff login for BrandFolder is as follows:
Please don’t share this login with those outside NCA staff, even with members. Members looking for their Accredited Member Badge or “the logo” for their materials should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org so they get access to the appropriate membership status recognition for their level.
