About NDTA
NDTA strives to be the association of choice for those employed in the global travel, transportation, and distribution system, and related industries to maximize our contribution to the National Security and Economic Growth of the United States. To do this, we intend:
  • To provide a common forum to discuss and endorse programs that promote transportation preparedness for economic and security needs.
  • To provide active assistance, in a non-partisan capacity, to government agencies involved in peacetime and defense preparedness transportation planning.
  • To serve as a link between government and industry to obtain the needed cooperation and support necessary for strong and efficient transportation systems.
  • To assist in the transportation education of young executives who plan to pursue a career in transportation through our NDTA Foundation and our Mentor ~ Protégé Program.
  • To support continued reliance on the private enterprise systems of ownership and operation of transportation.
  • To support, conduct and assist programs of transportation education and scientific research and development among private, industrial, educational and government agencies, which are designed to increase the effectiveness, economy and responsiveness of the transportation industry and allied services to defense needs.
  • To foster a spirit of patriotic and cooperative goodwill, cooperative endeavor and mutual understanding among its members, industrial entities, components of the transportation industry, the Armed Forces and Government agencies concerned with transportation.
