The AWPA Executive Committee is pleased to announce Nicole Butler will be its next Executive Vice President and Secretary, effective January 1, 2024. This selection is the culmination of a long and detailed search process which began in early 2023. The position opening was announced on relevant standards development and executive employment websites. AWPA received resumes and proposals from 244 individuals and organizations and the Executive Committee worked tirelessly to select the right person for the position. Nicole has 23 years experience at an ANSI accredited standards development organization and a proven track record of organizational strategy and growth. Nicole will be joining us at the 2023 Fall Technical Committee Meetings in Denver, and her transition period into the Executive Vice President position will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023.
