NVTC TechPAC Board of Trustees Announces New Members

The NVTC TechPAC Board of Trustees announced on July 13 that it has elected four new members to serve as TechPAC Trustees to fill vacancies that opened on the Board. The new Trustees are:

  • Baly Ambegaoker, CEO and Co-Founder, CENTERPOINT, Inc.
  • Steve Anderson, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations, ICF International
  • Jayson Ronk, Director of State Government Affairs, Micron Technology
  • Sheryl Schwartz, Managing Partner, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Administrative Officer, Blue Canopy Group

    “We are delighted that Baly, Steve, Jayson and Sheryl have joined our NVTC TechPAC Board of Trustees,” said NVTC TechPAC Chair Jeff Novak of AOL. “They bring with them a great mix of entrepreneurial experience, business leadership and public policy expertise that will enhance our ability to educate Virginia legislators, General Assembly candidates and candidates for statewide office about technology businesses and the public policy issues that are important to us. They are all active members in NVTC and are strongly committed to the success of NVTC and NVTC TechPAC.”

    The NVTC Board of Directors approved the formation of TechPAC in 2001 to enable the region’s technology businesses to speak as a community in collectively supporting strong pro-technology, pro-business candidates for office. TechPAC is a key benefit of NVTC membership that complements the comprehensive, valuable array of programs, policy advocacy and business services NVTC offers to bolster the success of our member companies, to strengthen the region’s technology industry and to positively impact the economic growth of the region and the Commonwealth of Virginia. TechPAC is administered by a 27 member Board of Trustees composed of top executives, entrepreneurs and government affairs professionals from NVTC member companies. TechPAC meets with candidates for Virginia’s General Assembly and for Governor and Attorney General for in-depth discussions about issues of importance to our technology community. TechPAC Trustees are responsible for evaluating candidates for state office in Virginia and making decisions about which candidates to endorse based on their positions on issues that impact technology businesses. All TechPAC decisions are based on the NVTC's Legislative Agenda and policy priorities, and TechPAC Trustees try to personally interview as many candidates and incumbent legislators as they can in a given election cycle.
