At the National Odyssey kickoff event last month, Judy Moore and Bill Davis made an announcement. Both Judy and Bill are leaving the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium in the next couple of months.
Judy has accepted a position with West Virginia Hive, in order to be closer to her hometown. She will mentor and work with new and emerging businesses in WV. Bill will retire at the beginning of June, but plans to continue to play a roll in the industry through consulting and other activities. He is looking forward to spending time with my grandchildren and family.
Micheal Smyth, the current assistant director – curricula and training, will step in as the interim director of the NAFTC. He has been with the organization since 2011. Bill and Judy would like to express appreciation for the relationships they have forged over the years at the NAFTC. Bill remarked, “Several years ago Judy and I made a pact to work together to make the NAFTC the premiere AFV training organization in the United States. Since then, we have conducted trainings with hundreds of participants across the country. We have seen the industry grow and evolve. Now as we leave, I know with more certainty than ever that together we DO make a difference!”
