The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), a member and accredited standards developer of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has announced that David White is its new president and CEO.

Prior, he was the director of external affairs and strategy for the Massachusetts Dental Society. He holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Northeastern University and an MBA and Juris Doctor degree from Suffolk University.
"David is the best choice from a very large group of highly qualified candidates," said Andy Felix, incoming board chair of TCIA. "He's a certified association executive with the education and association background we were looking for. Even more important, the Board believes he is the right person to advance TCIA's strategic plan for the members and the industry. We're delighted that he's accepted the position and eager to get to work."
