Honoring Our Members

The job of a synagogue executive director or administrator has a unique set of joys and challenges. While all our members deserve praise and recognition for all they do on a daily basis, NATA also seeks to recognize those members whose commitment and hard work goes above and beyond.

Each year at the Annual Conference, we recognize members for exceptional commitment to NATA and to the community. Nominations are accepted from peers and community members and the Awards Committee reviews the nominations to select the recipients.
