About Us

North Shores Improvement Association (NSIA) was founded in 1939 to improve the quality of life in our beachside communities.  

NSIA represents the area from South Ponte Vedra to the St. Augustine Inlet, and everything in between! We provide the opportunity for our residents to become stakeholders in our future, as well as encourage and support multifaceted activities for the entire community.  Volunteer and have a direct impact!

Mission: Our mission and purpose is to improve the quality of life, provide recreation and education to our community. It's important to us that everyone who lives on these beautiful shores feels welcome and connected to the area around them. 

Sustainability: Your donations help us achieve these goals, and sustain the 4 acre "Recreational Complex". Since we're a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization your donations are tax deductible!
