Sheila Joy Named NASSCO Executive Director

The National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) has appointed Sheila Joy as its new executive director. In this role, she leads NASSCO in its ongoing mission to set standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure, and to assure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.

She will also help take the association to the next level, according to Pete Kurz, NASSCO’s past president.

“NASSCO’s strategic plan now includes a higher level of volunteerism, particularly as it pertains to committee productivity and deliverables,” he explained. “It also identifies building greater awareness of NASSCO and, most importantly, developing programs that directly benefit our members.”

Joy is well-qualified to achieve these goals, Kurz stressed. “She has solid experience in managing a small business, efficiently leading nonprofit organizations, and successfully running her own marketing communications firm since 1999.”

She also has strong knowledge of the industry, with clients of her firm representing all aspects of trenchless technology: CIPP equipment and liner manufacturers, chemical root control, grouting and pipe bursting suppliers and various contractors.
In addition, she has more than 10 years of experience working directly with NASSCO, developing technical content on wide-ranging topics and building valuable alliances.

“Sheila’s unique blend of effectively managing a small business with sound, fiscal responsibility and thoroughly understanding the needs of our industry make her a perfect fit,” said Tim Vivian, current NASSCO president.
