North American Council of Automotive Teachers History

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The NACAT organization came into existence when a group of automotive educators met for the first time in 1974 at Salt Lake City, Utah. This group pronounced the need for a national automotive teacher's organization. They met again in 1975 in Greensboro, North Carolina and again in 1976 in Azusa, California. As a result of the planning and effort from the previous meetings, the National Association of College Automotive Teachers (NACAT) was incorporated in Indiana on the 21st of July 1977 (the Articles of Incorporation can be viewed by clicking here). The first official NACAT conference was held at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana and was hosted by George Whitehouse.

As the NACAT organization grew and evolved, the name was changed to the North American Council of Automotive Teachers. The name was changed to more accurately reflect the membership, which has a large percentage of Canadian members and includes secondary, post secondary, and industry automotive educators.
