The National Kidney Foundation's Council of Professional Living Donor Advocates (CPLDA) functions as a professional membership council within the framework of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF). The CPLDA exists to protect the rights and promote the best interests of living donors and potential donors by characterizing the roles, responsibilities, qualifications and training needs of the profession of Living Donor Advocate (LDA) and serving as the voice for LDAs. In addition, the Council serves as a liaison between hospital-based Living Donor Advocates and other organizations, individuals and professional groups and seeks to advocate on behalf of living and potential donors in the political, regulatory and policy development processes.
