New York (July 3, 2008)--NSCA had a busy time at InfoComm 08, adding to its board of directors, and giving away a 2008 Toyota Hybrid Prius to an NSCA member.
At its annual Member Meeting and Industry Forum during InfoComm 08, NSCA appointed two new members to the association's Board of Directors. Dave Ferlino, president of VistaCom Inc., and Michael Hester, managing partner of Beacon Communications, will each join the NSCA Board for three-year terms.
Andy Musci, president of Altel Systems, took the helm as President when Nancy Emerson, vice president of Vodaci Technologies, retired from the NSCA Board in June.
"Andy will continue to bring great enthusiasm and passion to the Board," said NSCA executive director Chuck Wilson. "We look forward to his leadership. At the same time, we thank Nancy and our two other retiring board members, Randy Vaughan and Rick Scharmann, for their hard work and dedication to NSCA."
Ron Pusey, president and CEO of Communications Specialists of Virginia, Inc., moves into the role of vice-president, while Ingolf deJong, president and COO of General Communications, Inc. and Ray Bailey, president of Lone Star Communications, Inc., round out NSCA's executive committee.
Musci said he looked forward to working with the Board to continue to strengthen NSCA. "I'm enthused about this slate of dedicated and committed people," Musci said. "Our mission continues to be building stronger and better integrators. We're excited to bring out new member benefits--including our new insurance program--that will enable our members to rise to the next level."
Meanwhile, an NSCA member who visited the NSCA Zone to enter to win a 2008 Toyota Hybrid Prius, drove away with some new wheels valued at nearly $29,000.
Greg Bedross, regional sales manager for Kramer Electronics Sierra Video, was the lucky winner of the Prius, which averages 46 miles to the gallon. Bedross said he received the news via cell phone while working on the show floor.
"I just can't believe it. I want to thank everyone," said a speechless Bedross when he picked up the keys to his new car. "I think (NSCA) is a wonderful organization and I'm very happy to be a part of it and I'll be with you a long time."
