Farewell Outgoing Directors and Welcome In New Directors
Volunteering to serve the membership.
The ITEA Board is comprised of elected and appointed positions who undertake the management of the business and affairs of the Association. The Directors meet quarterly to address the strategies of the Association.
Outgoing Directors. We would like to thank Tim Morey, KBR for serving 2 terms as an elected Director and serving in an executive capacity in the roles of Secretary (2021) Vice Chairman (2022) and Chairman (2023). His leadership and commitment to the T&E community through his roles within ITEA are appreciated. Erwin Sabile, Booz Allen Hamilton, also served two terms as an Elected Director and two additional years as an Appointed Director. He served as Treasurer (2022 and 2023) and during his tenure, Erwin also served as the Program Chair of the Cybersecurity Workshop and continues to serve as the President of the Hampton Roads Chapter. His enthusiasm is admirable, and he plans to continue serving as his chapter co-hosts the AI for T&E Forum in March and as the chair of the ITEA Communications Committee .
Incoming Directors. At the conclusion of the ITEA Annual International T&E Symposium this past December, the ITEA membership welcomed newly elected Director, Terry Clark of EWA Government Systems to a 3-year term and newly appointed Directors, Dr. Michael Barton(Parsons), Laurie Cummins (LoneStar Aerospace), Mark Gillenson (STEP/Memphis University), and Tim Grabert (NOVA Systems – AUS) to a 1-year term. The Board also elected their Executive Committee during the week: Chairman, Mark Phillips (Raytheon), Vice Chairman, Dr. Michael Barton, Secretary for a second term, Catherine O’Carroll (QinetiQ UK), and Treasurer, M. John Rafferty (AF Civilian). On Monday afternoon, K&E Management hosted the Directors for a welcome orientation session to introduce them to the way ITEA operates. They were able to highlight their passions for T&E and strategize on what they bring to the table, and how, collectively, they will have a very productive and strategic year!

Are you Certified in T&E?
Where else can your employees test their knowledge?
It is usually beneficial to seek out certification within your industry; and for those in Test and Evaluation, it’s no different. For instance, government employees can become certified through programs offered by the Defense Acquisition University, but did you know that for over 10 years, ITEA has been administering, managing, and awarding the Certified Test and Evaluation Professional (CTEP) credentials to individuals in both the government and contractors/ businesses.
We are a trusted non-profit education association with a Board of Examiners that developed the questions necessary to test individuals to enter or advance in the field of test and evaluation. To learn more about the 4 Domains of the program including T&E Planning; T&E Design; T&E Execution; and Test Data Analysis, Evaluation and Reporting visit our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Education and Networking brings Growth and Opportunity
Did you know ITEA hosts a multitude of technical workshops with relevant topics for you to gain insight, ask questions, and meet the leadership within your area of expertise? Did you know you also provide the opportunity to network with government and industry colleagues? And to top it off, did you know we always have a Call for Papers/Presentations to encourage you to bring forth solutions for industry challenges?
Interested in attending or presenting at one of our upcoming events? Do topics on Test Instrumentation, Multi-Domain Operations, Cybersecurity, and Directed Energy interest you? Don’t miss the opportunity! Be quick to check out the details here.
Educating the Workforce
Earning continuing credits for your professional growth.
Did you know that ITEA provides educational courses that align with the four domains of the T&E Certification program to groups in government and industry? We have a contract with the Workforce Development Office at a Navy command for a T&E Fundamentals course and are in discussion with another Agency to provide a course on Design of Experiments. We make it easy and affordable to bring T&E education to you. To learn more, contact us at email@example.com.
