SCAA Relocates Headquarters
Spill Control Association of America (SCAA) has relocated its headquarters to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia from Bel Air, Maryland.
"This move to the Washington, DC Metro area launches the next phase of SCAA's services and benefits to our expanding membership, and a greater recognition of our association as 'The Voice of Spill Response Professionals,'" said Andrew Altendorf, President.
For the past several years, SCAA has held its Annual Meeting in the capital region and regularly meets with the U.S. Coast Guard as a member of the agency's Partnership Action Team. SCAA also interfaces with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, and other federal agencies regionally and at Washington, DC headquarters, and as well as sister associations involved in oil and hazardous substance spill response, cleanup and site remediation and restoration professions.
"As part of this transition, we are pleased to name John Allen as Executive Director of SCAA. He brings more than 20 years of professional experience as a former Senior Vice President of one of our national OSRO members, and formerly as an independent environmental consultant and career Special Operations Naval Officer," added Altendorf.
