NASSCO Selects New Executive Director

August 2010 Vol. 65 No. 8

“We are very excited about Ted’s appointment,” said Gemora. “We know that in order to uphold NASSCO’s mission, we must reach out to other organizations, industries, governments, and look at all avenues to promote trenchless technologies. I believe that Ted is just the guy to do that. But beyond that, Ted also has a great combination of contractor, engineer and municipal experience, so I am confident that he will relate very well to NASSCO members.”

Gemora’s nine-years as NASSCO executive director left a noteworthy legacy of accomplishments which started during a period of significant technological advances and ended with a challenging economic period. One of the most significant accomplishments during Gemora’s tenure was in making the Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACP) a national standard. This was an important and much needed step for the industry and an excellent launching pad for the development of additional standards and best practices.

DeBoda will officially take the helm as executive director in August. However, Gemora will help with the transition until February 2011.
