NATA Officers - Nominate Now...
We are pleased to offer the NATA Treasurer position as a much less intimidating position. With the new appointment of a paid Bookkeeper, the role responsibilities of NATA Treasurer have been adjusted to monitoring the monthly ledger and online accounts, writing reimbursement checks to members and paying association business invoices, making association deposits, and attending three board meetings a year and reporting to the NATA Executive Board. The Treasurer role now involves about 30-60 minutes per month with double that during fall conference business, generally in September. We hope you know of someone that could contribute their time to this position. If you would like to know more about the position, please see the link below or contact Lynette Fast.

Our week-long dialogue on social justice opened on October 23 with a screen printing workshop outside the museum. Events continue through Friday with lectures and tours, as well as special events that include a panel discussion directed by live interactive polling, and the first ever takeover of the @SheldonMuseum Instagram account by visual artist and social activist Hank Willis Thomas.
Thomas will present "After Identity, What?" at 6 p.m. on Friday. He will discuss his ongoing, socially-engaged artistic practice, which provokes viewers by subverting misconceptions and singular views of individuals and histories.
Admission is free; doors open to the public at 5:30 p.m. The lecture will be simulcast at ianrmedia.unl.edu/live-2
