Avon, IN, July 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- With an initiative to establish a structure that is in line with the standard business practices for associations, the National Inventory Certification Association (NICA) has established a Board of Directors. This board will guide NICA through continued growth and improved processes in this organization’s functional areas - education, certification, and association management.
The board members were chosen based on their ability to lead as the association moves forward. Realizing the need for experience in key areas, the directors focused on the value each member will contribute in the combined areas of technology, business, management, education, and the asset inventory industry. The varied professional skills and knowledge base of each member will contribute greatly now and in the future of NICA.
