NATA's Living Values




The NATA Mission reflects our purpose as an organization and who we are today. It is specific to NATA and we’ll continue our work to ensure it is realized. The NATA Vision is an aspirational statement about the world in which we are a significant player. While it is not specific to NATA, we play a critical role in realizing the overall vision. NATA is committed to making the NATA Strategic Priorities a part of the on-going work of NATA.

We suggest to all NATA members that they print a copy of the NATA Living Values and frame it for their office. NATA is very proud that all new and renewing NATA members must sign a Code of Ethics.
