The North American Guqin Association (Chinese: 北美琴社; often abbreviated to NAGA) is a guqin society based in the State of California, in the United States, which serves guqin players on the West Coast of the United States. Of the three major qin societies of the West (the other two being the London Youlan Qin Society and the New York Qin Society), this society is the world's largest English speaking online community for the guqin and has the most connections and scope of activities.
NAGA was founded by the qin player Wang Fei in 1997 who is the current director of the society. As of 2006, the society has applied for non-profit status.
NAGA is the only society outside China to be instrumental in instigating an official 'Guqin Day' in the city of Milpitas in 2007. The day was set on the 7th of November. 
Membership is open to all who have an interest in qin music which only requires an online registration. The society comprises 3 officers, several board members, consultants and numerous ordinary members. Members have the benefit of attending meetings and yajis as well as special events which can take place in China. They are also part of the mailing list.
