NATA's 2022 Annual Conference promises to be a valuable experience for all! We are excited to bring you dynamic Keynote Speakers, interactive workshops with practical tools and tips for implementation, and meaningful connections with peers from around North America and beyond.

This year's theme, Surfing Through the Waves, will focus on three areas for supporting NATA members to lead your communities with excellence:

  • Breaking Barriers - Focusing on diversity, equity and inclusion, and addressing challenges to creating welcoming and inclusive environments for all people.
  • Navigating a Changing World - Addressing the major societal, technological, and workplace culture shifts that have emerged in the past few years.
  • Seas the Day! - Bringing us back to the "why" of what we do in our everyday lives at work, at home, and in our community, creating collaborative and supportive work environments, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

All NATA members are eligible to attend the conference. If you are not a member and would like more information, please peruse our Membership Information!

It takes a significant number of volunteers to put together a successful conference each year. In addition to the conference leadership team, many other NATA members devote their time and resources to creating a memorable and meaningful event.
