Initially adopted at the Board of Directors meeting in Cleveland, Ohio on October 14, 2018, and updated by the Board of Directors at the Fall 2020 Virtual Board & Committee Chairs Meeting on October 19, 2020, the following statement articulates the values, mission, and strategy priorities for the association.

Our Mission

NACAA exists to advance the equitable protection of clean air and public health for all, and to improve the capability and effectiveness of state and local air agencies.


NACAA’s 17-member Board of Directors includes a state agency representative from each of the 10 EPA regions across the country and seven local agency representatives.  Officers include co-presidents (one state and one local), co-vice presidents and co-treasurers.

The heart of NACAA is its strong committee structure.  The association's 13 committees – each co-chaired by a state agency director and a local agency director – focus on the wide range of issues related to cleaning up our air.


NACAA's staff strives to provide the association's members with information, opportunities and expertise of outstanding quality. Serving our members, so that they can clean up the air, is our highest priority.

Jobs available in air pollution control will be posted in this section on a rolling basis. If your agency would like to announce an available position, please email or call (571) 970-6678.
