Welcome Message from Tonya Rideout, NATOA Executive Director

Tonya Rideout

Welcome to the NATOA website! NATOA is the premiere membership organization with a robust, nationwide network of individuals, cities, towns and counties working in all arenas of local government telecommunications. As an organization, we focus on member growth and leadership through these mission-critical themes: Education, Connection and Federal Advocacy.

Technology has the power to transform lives and grow business. NATOA has guided the communications technology policies and practices for over 40 years and continues to be the leader in addressing emerging issues through local, state, and federal communications laws, administrative rulings, and judicial decisions. My goal is to preserve and build upon the incredible legacy that this organization has, while simultaneously looking toward the future with growth, inclusion, and opportunity in mind.

I hope you will consider becoming involved with NATOA. Our members have a positive impact on the lives of residents across the U.S. We look forward to welcoming you into the NATOA family!
