NATA takes seriously our responsibility to help ensure that Executive Directors and Temple Administrators have access to the latest information and best practices and policies for running our synagogues. Only through continued education will we be able to enhance the competence of NATA members to meet the ever-evolving needs of our communities.
It is in that spirit that NATA has created a variety of leadership, management, and administrative resources dedicated to enhancing the knowledge base of our membership. As leaders in temple administration, it is our responsibility to ensure that we are up-to-date on the latest best practices and policies for maintaining the effective operations of our home synagogues. To achieve this, NATA offers a variety of leadership, management, and administrative resources to build upon our members’ skillsets and experience in the areas of facilities management, finance, fundraising, membership, office systems, personnel, and public relations.
These resources include in-person workshops, webinars, an enhanced resource hub, training sessions, and educational opportunities at our Annual Conference. NATA also provides support for those Executive Directors and Administrators interested in pursuing their FTA (Fellowship in Temple Administration).
Resident seminars, called the Institute, are held bi-annually, and provide in-depth courses on topics related to all areas of synagogue administration. All these programs offer participants valuable opportunities for networking, fellowship, and professional growth.
