Join the Candidate Discussion
Log on to NTA Online’s Member Forums and join the candidate discussion. In preparation for this year’s election of the 2004 NTA Board of Directors, an online discussion folder has been created for candidates to express their views and for members to ask questions of their potential future leaders.

To log on, simply click on the "Member Forums" link in the header on this page. Then, enter your user name and password. The discussion folder was created to generate dialogue between members and candidates leading up the 2004 elections to allow the NTA membership the opportunity to determine which candidates best represent their individual association needs and goals.

This year, NTA will implement easy-to-use electronic voting for the election. Election materials will be distributed to all members through e-mail this year. Approved by the NTA Board at their July meeting, the Web-based system will allow members to obtain biographical information, as well as cast their official ballot. Election ballots will be e-mailed to the full membership in early October.
