Hail & Farewell
NDTA welcomes Claudia Ernst to the headquarters family! Claudia has joined NDTA as the Director of Finance and Accounting. Prior to taking on this role, Claudia worked in corporate finance and accounting in the industrial paint and coatings industry. She shares NDTA’s strong ties to the US military with a father who was in the Air Force, a husband who was in the Navy, one son who serves in the Air National Guard, and another son who serves in the Army. Claudia looks forward to contributing to NDTA’s success through strong financial management and hopes to meet many of you at this year’s Fall Meeting. We are excited to have you on board Claudia!
NDTA also bids farewell to VP Finance & Treasurer, Patty Casidy. For almost 15 years, her meticulous attention to detail and outstanding financial and accounting skills have ensured the organization remained strong and financially sound. But perhaps the accomplishment Patty is most proud of has been her implementation and management of the NDTA headquarter’s Toys for Tots program which has spanned eleven years and has donated thousands of toys to the USMC for distribution to children in the Northern Virginia Region. NDTA is grateful to Patty for her many years of hard work and we hope retirement brings her much happiness!
