Seven ad hoc committees serve the National Demolition Association. These committees provide a space for discussion of key demolition industry concerns and serve to carry out the interests of the Strategic Plan. It is through these committees that NDA members exchange information and ideas, provide guidance to the association, and develop programs and tools to meet the needs of our members and the industry at large.
In accordance with the bylaws, committee assignments are made once per year, after the conclusion of our Annual Convention & Expo. Our 2022 Call for Volunteers is now open. Applications are reviewed by the Leadership Development Committee and committee assignments are made and approved officially by the President of NDA. If you are approved to join a committee, you can expect to start participating in all committee activities in spring 2022, after the conclusion of Demolition San Diego. Please complete the Call for Volunteers Form by December 31st.
If you are interested in passionately serving the strategic direction of NDA, or have any questions about the application process, contact us at to learn more about our committees.
