 NCDBA Appoints New Director 


The North Carolina Defense Business Association (NCDBA) is proud to welcome Tammy Everett as the new Executive Director. Everett will begin her role as the new Director on May 1, 2015. 


Everett has been an active member of NCDBA since 2011. She joined the Events Committee in 2012, became the Events Committee Chair in 2013 and Board member in 2014. Tammy brings over 20 years of sales experience, most recently as Director of National Accounts at Pinehurst Resort. Having represented Pinehurst Resort for the past 16 years she has been responsible for generating local and national group business, specifically in the areas of defense, state and federal government and military as it relates to their conference and lodging requirements.


"It is truly an honor to be selected to serve the members of the NCDBA," says Tammy Everett, "I am excited about this opportunity in leading the charge for growth in the organization."   

"We could not be more excited with the selection of Tammy Everett as the new Executive Director. The NCDBA is poised to go to the next level in serving the best interests of our member corporations, and Tammy is the perfect choice to take us there!" as stated by Chairman-Elect David Hayden.

 "Joy Thrash, current Director, has been superb in growing the NCDBA from the beginning into the dynamic association we are today," says Hayden, "Joy has helped prepare the organization for the next level of success."


Please join us on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 during the NCDBA Expo opening breakfast at Pinehurst Resort as we welcome Tammy Everett as the new Executive Director of NCDBA. Visit www.ncdba for more details on the 5th Annual NCDBA Conference.
