National Advisors for Chapters (NAC)


To serve as advisors, advocates, and mentors within ATD on matters of chapter management and operations to ensure high quality service to members.

The NAC are distinguished ATD chapter past presidents who serve as national volunteer advisors to the chapter services team and chapter leaders. The chair of the NAC also serves on the ATD Board of Directors.

Elected NAC members serve three-year terms. The chairs of the Chapter Recognition Committee (CRC) and the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference Program Advisory Committee (ALC PAC) serve one-year terms on the NAC during their tenure as committee chairs.
