Can you lend a hand? ATA  Volunteers

ATA’s programming is made possible by volunteers. Our committees (see below) are made up of volunteers who work together under the leadership of a Committee Chair. ATA welcomes new volunteers at all times and will find a job that suits your interests, talents and availability. The Board of Directors hopes you will join the “inner circle” of ATA by getting involved. Contact us!
