Tuesday, June 13, 2017 | Comments

The National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) elected a new executive board. NASNA’s new president is Maria Jacques, director of the state of Maine Emergency Services Communication Bureau.

Jacques has spent her entire career in public safety, the past 21 years in 9-1-1. In 1996, she was as one of three people hired to implement a statewide enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) system in Maine, which was completed in 2001. In 2008, she was appointed director of the Maine Emergency Services Communication Bureau and charged with planning for and migrating the E9-1-1 system to next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1). In 2011, Maine released a request for proposals (RFP) to replace its aging E9-1-1 system with an i3 compliant system, and by the end of July 2014, implemented a statewide NG 9-1-1 system using geospatial routing and delivering all 9-1-1 calls as IP to the state’s 26 public-safety answering points (PSAPs).

NASNA’s new Vice President-Treasurer is Kelli Merriweather, executive director of the Texas Commission on State Emergency Communications (CSEC), a position she has held since 2011. She held several positions at CSEC during the 16 years prior to becoming its executive director.

Harriet Miller-Brown is NASNA’s new secretary and the state 9-1-1 administrator for Michigan. She has an extensive background in public-safety communications policy, 9-1-1 management and facility implementation.
