NMTC Team

John Casner, Executive Director, along with NMTC committees comprise the NMTC Team.  Together, we offer ‘full-time’ presence and support to all NMTC members. We are pleased to have the support of the Harford County Office of Economic Development for facility resources, Battelle for monthly meetings and Towson University in NE MD for large area conference space

NMTC Committees 
Each committee investigate issues, recommend direction and initiates action in areas significant to the NMTC membership. Each committee is chaired by an NMTC Board Member.

We welcome members to join a committee to offer their perspective and aid in accomplishing the goals of that individual committee, and the NMTC in total.
