NENA: The 9-1-1 Association today announced that Erin Elrod,
Director of Winchester (VA) Emergency Communications, has been selected by
association President Christy Williams to serve as Northeastern Region Director
on the organization’s 10-seat Executive Board.
"I am truly honored by this appointment,” said Elrod.
"I look forward to working with the rest of the board, NENA staff, and our
committees and working groups to serve NENA’s membership and improve 9-1-1.”
Elrod has more than two decades of public safety emergency
communications experience, and has served in her current capacity as director
since 2005. A NENA member since that same year and a certified Emergency Number
Professional (ENP) since 2010, Elrod has been active in both local and national
NENA activities. She served on the Virginia NENA board from 2011-2014 and is an
active member of the national Membership Committee.
"My fellow board members and I look forward to working
with Erin,” said Williams. "Her expertise, her dedication, and her passion
for 9-1-1 will undoubtedly benefit NENA’s Northeastern Region members, as well
as the citizens who are made safer through advances and improvements to 9-1-1 supported
by NENA’s leadership.”
Elrod’s appointment fills the vacancy on the Board created
when Ed Marecki resigned his position at the end of 2015. "We thank Ed for
his many years of service to the association,” said Williams.
