NASAO Announces Recruitment Search for New Leadership

Washington, DC (November 5, 2019) - The National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) has announced a change of management and executive leadership heading into 2020. NASAO has been contracted with the association management firm, Interel, since 2017 when the company acquired Association Management Group, Incorporated. With the announcement of Interel’s U.S. office closure, and termination of all association management services by December 31, 2019, NASAO will be conducting a nationwide recruitment for a President/CEO. The search will be led by ADK Consulting & Executive Search.

“NASAO extends our deepest thanks to Shelly Simi, who stepped into the role of President/CEO at the start of this year through the Interel management contract,” said John Binder (AK), NASAO Board Chair. “Her leadership throughout 2019 has furthered NASAO’s mission and it has been a pleasure to work with her over the past year.”  

NASAO represents the states and public on aviation issues to help provide a safe, secure, efficient, and well-funded aviation system for growth and job creation across the nation. Additional information regarding the executive search will be forthcoming.
