NWCOA Announces Search for New Management Team

Continued growth spurs need for the National Wildlife Control Operators Association to revamp its management.


FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The National Wildlife Control Operators Association (NWCOA) has launched a strategic search for a new management team, after a nearly six-year tenure with Cooper Coron and Associates (CCA) as their association management company. 

Andrea and Kristin Coron, principles with CCA, began their work with NWCOA in August 2013. In the ensuing time, the Corons learned a lot about the Wildlife Control Industry and worked hard to serve the association.

Charles Holt, NWCOA President, said, “With professional service, expert management vision and a very personal touch, CCA has helped bring NWCOA from a small trade association with 450 members to a nationally recognized authority on wildlife control training and industry development with 900 members.”

In addition to membership growth, NWCOA has experienced hearty growth in its training department in both the number of certification courses available, and the frequency of their presentation.  With the hiring of Gregg Schumaker as NWCOA Training Coordinator, three new courses have been developed, and NWCOA has quadrupled the number of training events they provide. 

“The financial stability and strength cultivated under the watchful eye of CCA’s financial management, has positioned NWCOA to capitalize on the momentum built over the last 3 years and continue the exponential growth in our training opportunities,” says Chris Lunn, NWCOA Treasurer. 

“NWCOA’s sharp growth has really increased the management needs beyond the capacity of our company,“ says Andrea Coron, CCA President and NWCOA Executive Director. “It has been hugely rewarding to work with the great people who lead and those that are members of NWCOA. We will really miss this organization. We are very proud of the role that we've played in NWCOA’s growth over the last 5 3/4 years.”

A request for proposals outlining the management needs has been published and is available at https://careerhq.asaecenter.org/jobs/12320762. Proposals from either individuals or association management companies are being reviewed now. The review will continue until an appropriate candidate is found.
