The Nordic Association for Lexicography has approximately 230 members. A large majority of these are individuals, but some lexicographic institutions and book publishers have also signed up as members. NFL membership includes subscriptions to LexicoNordica magazine.

The board of the NFL emphasizes that the association’s activities contribute to strengthening linguistic co-operation in the Nordic countries. From the very beginning, the association had worked closely with the Nordic Language Secretariat in Oslo, which took on the association’s secretariat functions, was a co-organizer of the Nordic lexicography conferences and in many other ways provided support for the association’s activities. From 1997, there was a reorganization of Nordic language co-operation, and the Nordic Language Council took over the tasks. Following another reorganization in 2004, the association is now cooperating with the Nordic Language Council and most recently Nordic Language Coordination.
