To get the most out of your membership, NATSAP encourages all new members to participate on one of our many committees. Our committees act as the planning bodies that guide NATSAP in policy and philosophy. Participating on a committee allows members to contribute ideas on how to better improve the Association. Innovative ideas from committee members have served as a guiding light for NATSAP as we continually improve upon our core beliefs. We can only benefit further from ideas that a new member brings.
We are pleased to announce the 2014-2015 NATSAP committee structure along with a concise role description of each.
