NATA Professional Association Membership Depends on You
NATA Membership has increased by about 25 members to hover between 190-205 members in the last 2 years. This is the strongest our association has ever been. Most all members would say they joined NATA and found professional growth that they had not perceived because a member had requested they join.
NATA would like to thank every member for your professional membership with our organization that advocates for and advances art education in Nebraska to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding. Please consider who you could ask to join our association for support and professional growth with their career for less than $0.25 a day! Take a look at what our association does for you. Request a new professional join today!

Teaching has changed. Professional responsibilities have changed. Students have changed. Accountability has changed. School/district structure has changed. Shoot, even lunch and recess has changed. Our responsibilities and needs are changing faster than we can keep up. The new NATA Board Structure is in a piloting phase right now. We are trying to determine where our focus should lie and what member's needs will be in the next 1-5 years and beyond. Please take 2 minutes to complete a brief survey that includes your opinion of which services are most important to you as NATA plans for support of art educators across the state of Nebraska. Please ask yourself what you need in order "to advocate for and advance art education in Nebraska to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding".
