NACAT is governed by a nine member Board of Directors and business is conducted by the Officers which include President, Vice President/President Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer. There is an annual member's meeting which is always held during the third week in July. The Directors and Officers are elected at large by the members and serve prescribed terms.
The annual conference is held at various locations around North America and is normally hosted by a local school. This week long event educates and renews the members to deal with the association's goal of improving automotive education. There have been 43 successful NACAT conferences (as of 2016), ranging from coast to coast, Texas to Canada, and the tradition of excellence continues. The 2017 conference will be hosted in Warren, Michigan July 17-20 2017. A list of conferences can be viewed by clicking here.
The NACAT organization owes its existence to the forward thinking automotive teachers who had the strong determination to bring it together and to the faithful members who have kept it strong.
