NSCA has elected a new President to its executive committee, and has added two new officers to its Board of Directors for 2020 to 2021.
Mike Boettcher, CEO-PA at New Era Technology and current NSCA VP, assumed the role of NSCA Board of Directors President on July 1. Boettcher replaces Josh Shanahan, President and CEO at Sport View Technologies, whose two-year term as President ended on June 30. Shanahan will serve as the executive committee’s immediate past president, replacing Kelly McCarthy of Genesis Integration.
“I have some big shoes to fill in terms of previous presidents who have done great things and pushed the envelope,” Boettcher said. “During my term, I plan to focus on continuity, diversity and agility. We want to continue our programs and committees, help integrators diversify their portfolios and bring new people into the industry, and be nimble so we can adjust quickly to members’ changing needs – like NSCA has done this year to put together granular and big-picture data and information to provide to members about business survival.”
Ray Bailey, President at Lone Star Communications and current Board Member, will become NSCA VP; Tim Hennen, CTO at IVCi, will become NSCA Secretary. Current board member Dan Schmidtendorff, President and CEO at Communication Company, will now serve as NSCA Treasurer.
