NSCA today announced the election of New Era-PA CEO Mike Boettcher as new president of its executive committee, as well as many other leadership changes and the addition of two new officers to its board of directors for 2020-2021.

Boettcher assumed the role of NSCA board of directors president on July 1, after serving as VP.

“I have some big shoes to fill in terms of previous presidents who have done great things and pushed the envelope,” said Boettcher in the NSCA announcement. “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,” he said in the association announcement.

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.
