Meet the members of the ATA SPD Website Committee (2019-2020)!


The SPD website serves as a primary means of communication with Division members and followers. Under the direction of the Division Administrator and the co-webmasters, the Website Committee facilitates communication by handling the website’s design, content, and any updates.
