Former NVTC Chair Dan Bannister passed away on Saturday, March 12 at Georgetown University Hospital after a long battle with cancer. The NVTC Board and staff send their condolences to Dan's wife Sondra and his entire family.

"Dan Bannister was an extraordinary leader of our community. He was an exceptional chairman of NVTC, our Equal Footing Foundation and his company DynCorp," said NVTC President & CEO Bobbie Kilberg. "Most importantly, Dan was a wonderful person - warm and caring, committed, accomplished and productive. It is hard to imagine our technology community without his gracious presence."
