"The inaugural Board of Governors consists of talented individuals representing the diversity of the wireless

certification programs through the critical stages of development and to the marketplace," added Slagle.
of Governors will be formally seated next week during the inaugural NWSA meetings that will be held in Denver, Colorado on
August 12-13, 2015.
"The diverse backgrounds of the individuals represented on the Board of Governors will be an
incredible asset to NWSA and serve the organization very well as it prepares its assessment and certification programs to
go through the ANSI/ISO 17024 accreditation process," stated Joel Oliva, NCCCO's Director of Operations and Program Development.
Oliva will be collaborating closely with the Board of Governors and will be directly involved in NWSA's program development
and test administration phase.
The NWSA organization is the result of collaborative efforts between a broad coalition
of the industry's leading subject matter experts, companies and stakeholders representing wireless carriers, tower owners,
OEM's, turnkey management firms, small contractors, tower technicians and industry associations. Industry leaders have pledged
to provide timely and relevant updates to the industry as key benchmarks are achieved in the establishment of the NWSA national
assessment and certification program.
