In This Section
Beyond NATA, there is a large network of regional and local groups throughout North America where members may engage with, and learn from, Executive Directors and Administrators in their local area. Regional groups are not owned or managed by NATA so membership in these groups include professionals who may or may not be members of NATA. These groups meet regularly and include colleagues from different sized congregations and will often include all denominations in Judaism and provide you with the opportunity to talk through various issues that may be specific to your region.
Each group operates independently with its own leadership, agenda, meeting schedules, and policies.
Most regional groups meet regularly with colleagues from different sized congregations and often include all denominations in Judaism. These groups offer opportunities to network with other executives and administrators in your local/geographic area, discuss relevant topics, and gather in person and/or remotely.
The list of known local groups is below. You are welcome to reach out directly to the person noted for your local group to learn more.
