NATA holds a conference every year throughout North America. Check out the list of Conferences from 1941 to the present.
The conference has been our most exciting venue and opportunity to welcome our NATA First Timers through the Mentor program and First Timer?s reception.
NATA Regular & Senior Members can receive scholarship support who could not otherwise afford to attend the annual conference.
NATA is an organization committed to the education and support of its members. Colleagues are available to help each other with advice, guidance, and expertise at a moment?s notice. NATA provides exceptional training for our membership with continuing educational opportunities, classes, conferences, and upcoming webinars. We also offer a joint certification program in which you can earn a Fellow in Temple Administration certificate.
Once a year, the NATA Board invites future leaders to attend a board meeting and learn about NATA.
For those NATA members who need support, NATA can match you up with someone with the experience and skills.
NATA's Member-to-Member support program draws on the knowledge and experience of peer colleagues who are available to offer support when a NATA member is facing a difficult or challenging situation in their workplace. This might include issues with leadership, boards, colleagues, members or supervisors; contract/employment negotiations; navigating tricky situations; or issues that may be affecting work/life balance. While NATA cannot offer legal advice, we can often point someone in the right direction. Please call 1-800-966-NATA, extension 1 or email Michael Liepman, NATA Executive Director where you will be connected with a Member-to-Member volunteer.

You can share files, tag people, read other conversations that may be useful and it has a robust search function.
Check out the Regional groups throughout North America. We highly recommend that NATA members join a local group.
