NATA Association Feedback - Focusing Forward

The new NATA Board Structure is in a piloting phase right now. We are trying to determine where our focus should lie and what member's needs will be in the next 1-5 years and beyond. Please take 4 minutes to complete a brief survey that includes your opinion of which services are most important to you as NATA plans for support of art educators across the state of Nebraska. Please ask yourself what you need in order "to advocate for and advance art education in Nebraska to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding".

    ADVOCACY

    Communicate a clear MESSAGE: The message is the answer to the question: "Why is learning in the visual arts essential to education in the 21st century?” Be VISIBLE: Get out of the art room/studio and into the community with your MESSAGE. Activate an Advocacy NETWORK: Identify and build an advocacy network. Action requires committed people. Include media, legislators, education decision makers and parents. Work with your state/regional NAEA organization to partner with your state Alliance for Arts Education affiliate and your state’s arts advocacy citizens group. http://www.arteducators.org/advocacy/advocacy-made-simple
