September 2007 - The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) has announced the appointment of chairmen to two NCCCO Committees.
Ron Kohner, Landmark Engineering Services, Roseville, MN, has been appointed Chairman of the Ethics and Discipline Committee, and Larry DeMark, IUOE Local 825, Dayton, NJ, has been appointed Chairman of the Appeals Committee.
“Both committees are at the center of NCCCO’s standard policy of investigating alleged cases of inappropriate behavior by certified individuals, and of providing for appeal of any decisions reached,” said NCCCO Executive Director, Graham Brent.
“NCCCO is proud and privileged to be able to call on the professional expertise of these industry experts,” said NCCCO President, John Kennedy. “The work of these committees underpin the twin concepts of fairness and due process that have been a hallmark of CCO certification since its inception. It is vital they are led by individuals that have established an industry-wide reputation of the depth that Messrs Kohner and DeMark certainly have.”
Both Kohner and DeMark already serve on other NCCCO Committees, and both are currently serving five-year terms as Commissioners.
