Along with the Board of Directors, the NATA Foundation depends on various committees to ensure that the mission of the organization is carried out.  There is a board member and staff member assigned to each committee to serve as liaison and conduit between the committee and the board.  Without the long hours and dedication of its committee members, the NATA Foundation would not be able to facilitate its research and education programs.
