Ad Hoc Committees

From time to time, the NDASA chairman or Board of Directors may appoint an ad hoc committee to address a specific issue affecting our membership or the nation’s drug and alcohol testing industry. An ad hoc committee may be disbanded after submitting a final report or completing its assigned duties.

State Affiliate Caucus

As states enact legislation that affects employers, drug testing providers, substance abuse treatment programs and public safety services, it is important that NDASA is kept apprised of any issues that originate at the state level that may impact our industry. NDASA established this ambassador program to ensure the association is well informed regarding state issues by expert members.

Our Federal PAC

NDASA formed a political action committee to promote and support candidates for federal office, who align with our mission and advocate for our priorities, goals, positions and objectives. Our PAC does not support candidates based on political party or ideology, but rather on their opinions and policy concerning the issues we care about.
