NACD is supported by a number of committees that provide thought leadership on issues and programs that are integral to the membership and chemical distribution industry. These volunteer-based committees identify, develop and ensure the implementation of high-quality programs and resources that promote the growth and betterment of member companies and the industry as a whole.
Interested in volunteering for a committee? Please contact the NACD staff representative of your committee of interest.
NACD is divided into four regions, each with its own Officers and Board of Directors. The regional organizations are an integral part of the NACD membership structure and play a key role in recruiting and retaining members.
