The Commonwealth of Virginia chartered the National Workers Association in September 1975, as a non-stock organization. The association was founded by eligibility workers in Norfolk, Virginia who felt that their needs were not being addressed by professional organizations. They believed that individuals in the eligibility field needed an association through which they could express their positions on policy issues and promote professionalism.

What began with a small group of workers in a local agency has grown to a national organization which includes members from all levels of the profession, from around the country. What they envisioned had come to fruition. National Eligibility Workers Association (NEW PATHS) has gained recognition and credibility with administrators and legislators on a local, state and federal level. As a professional, members are considered essential and relevant.
