NATEA's eight Regional Offices are located in Washington D. C., Phoenix, San Diego, Detroit, Columbus, Las Vegas, Vancouver and Taiwan to promote NATEA activities.
The Association serves its members and their communities in different technical and social gatherings, and periodically holds a variety of annual technological conferences, workshops, seminars that are either independently managed by regional chapters or by collaborating with local mainstream professional organizations like IEEE or IBIO through ten (10) different internal Special Interest Groups (SIGs). All the events are open to the general public. Noticeably, many members serve in leading-edge technical and managerial positions in various business sectors in North America and are founders of some of the most successful companies in the high-tech and its associated industries.
