* List of TB Controllers by Burden Level

This is the updated current list of persons eligible to serve on the NTCA Board. This list reflects the way NTCA has historically identified/profiled states for the burden-level representation and names the controller/program managers who are eligible to serve on the NTCA Board. Anyone from this list can be nominated for the three Executive Committee positions; nominations for the burden-level representatives must come from within each of the three levels.

The methodology for determining the NTCA Board positions which are incidence- or burden-level representatives is a multi-step process and includes the following:

  1. A three-year average is calculated based on the number of reported cases
  2. The states and the District of Columbia are ranked from highest number of cases to lowest, and
  3. The states are then split into an even number of 3 groups representing high/medium/low. This results in 17 jurisdictions falling into each of the three burden categories.

We recognize that THIS IS NOT HOW INCIDENCE OR BURDEN LEVELS ARE IDENTIFIED FOR OTHER PURPOSES so some states which consider themselves medium of low burden may appear in the next higher category. Please review the list and consider those among you who would be great leaders and represent well our TB programs.

Nomination and Election Process

Separate committees for NTCA and each section will review nominations, present a slate of candidates, and oversee the election process:

  • NTCA Board Nomination Committee Chair: Diana Fortune
  • NTNC Nomination Committee Chair: Ann Scarpita
  • NSTC Nomination Committee Chair: John Bernardo
  • SETC Nomination Committee Chair: Jason Cummins

Please send all nominations to Donna Wegener, dhwegener@tbcontrollers.org, who will compile the nominations and share them with  the members of the Nominations Committees. Please submit your nominations for the NTCA Board by COB on July 31 and for NTNC, NSTC, and SETC Offices by COB on July 31.
