NTCA Technical Committee

The NTCA Technical Committee identifies recurring job site problems in the field and addresses them through regularly scheduled meetings.  Leading representatives from the entire tile industry comprise the Committee, which is responsible for the development of the NTCA Reference Manual.  Its primary focus and concern is to develop documents that assist the tile contractor in problem prevention and resolution, and to support improved communication and professionalism with their customer.
