NASSCO’s committed and highly active Board of Directors is comprised of industry leaders who represent contractors, consulting engineers and the manufacturers and suppliers of the equipment and materials used in trenchless technologies. Elected by NASSCO members, Board appointees also include an advocate from the public agency sector to ensure all segments of the industry are represented well.  Board terms are purposely staggered to provide continuity and seamless integration of new Board members as they are nominated each year by their peers.
