The NTA employs a membership networking platform making it easy for customers to shop for our member taxidermists by name or location. As a member, you are able to upload a business card, logo, or image. Our database, which supports direct emailing connection, makes it seamless for potential clients to make contact with our members.
All memberships afford current members opportunities such as small group hands-on seminars, one-on-one trainings, online auction bidding, and at-cost NTA merchandise. While individuals, young and old alike, may like to participate in small group learning experiences, businesses may prefer on-site private sessions customized for a staff’s needs.
