The National Theatre Conference, founded in 1925, and a not-for-profit corporation since 1945, is an organization of distinguished members of the American Theatre. The several purposes of the National Theatre Conference are:

— To explore the means of best serving the interests of the American Theatre, and to initiate, encourage, and support projects of value and significance with a view to strengthening and broadening the influence of theatre in our country.

— To bring the membership together at least once a year in a spirit of mutual helpfulness for the interchange of aims and ideals, and for the discussion of common problems and interests.

— To provide, at its annual meeting, opportunities for the membership to hear the views of outstanding personalities in the theatre and to observe demonstrations of various techniques in order that the membership may profit thereby.
