THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE OF TRADE ASSOCIATIONS
These 12 Associations form NATA, an organization that is dedicated to uniting and leveraging the synergy of their scope to add value to its members.
NATA prides itself on its affiliations with all 12 member Trade Associations. The Associations not only give back to the local community through involvement with various organizations, but by also supporting PartnershipsInAction, a global initiative of the Aga Khan Foundation aimed at alleviating poverty in the Third World while building an infrastructure of higher education, better health services, rural development, and civil society. NATA also participates in annual tradeshows organized by National Association of Convenience Stores, an international trade association representing more than 2,100 retail and 1,600 supplier company members.
NATA is dedicated to uniting Trade Associations across the United States to not only leverage the synergy of joint purchasing power and consummate National Deals with major vendors, but also to improve the quality of life for our entire membership.
A Mission does not stop at providing financial benefits to members; it also strives to offer value-added programs, as well. For example, the organization is in the process of implementing a training-based module to its website which will be advantageous to Trade Associations by providing education to member store employees. The modules will focus on topics such as, Theft Prevention, Customer Service, Responsible Selling of Age-Restricted Products, Safe Food Handling Procedures, etc., all of which increase bottom line sales and consequently, increase value.
