This committee coordinates the National Initiative & Assistance Network of the NIAAA. The purpose of the NIAN is for use by members in cases of medical or vehicular emergencies when traveling or to assist the office in the case of a natural disaster. The committee secures two emergency contact persons in each state and coordinates the publicity of this list of emergency contacts. The committee has one member from each of the eight NIAAA geographical sections and meets each year in conjunction with the NIAAA/NFHS National Conference for athletic directors.
You can find your National Initiative & Assistance Network contacts under the State Leadership & Website Directory.
An additional function of the NIAN is to raise awareness and funds to nationwide causes. Please watch this video that highlights our current focus:
