Message From Our Executive Director, Tom Armelino

Thank you for visiting the National Association of School Superintendents (NASS) website to learn about the many exciting professional resources and essential benefits we offer our members.  We strive to be a district thought-leader and partner that focuses on three areas: (1) promoting meaningful member engagement and collaboration; (2) supporting rich and targeted professional learning; and (3) encouraging sound policy that is student centric and pro public education. We are committed to advancing our members’ success and promoting the profession with essential services and benefits tailored to your needs as a leader.  We invite you to join our association and take advantage of our many services. 


Dr. Sonny DaMarto, Associate Executive Director

I first joined NASS in 2009 and served on the Executive Board until I became the Assistant Executive Director in 2016. As a former superintendent, I valued the ability to network with superintendents from across the country, sharing ideas and learning from each other. NASS provided me with not only access to other school leaders, but a library of resources and professional development focused on the work of a superintendent. I'm excited to now serve as a leader in the association as we advocate at the federal level in Washington D.C. to best serve the needs of students across the United States. I encourage members to browse our website, learn more and experience the many services available in our great association.
