LANSDALE, Pa. — The National School Transportation Association (NSTA) has a new president at the helm and a new executive director, among other changes.

Blake Krapf, CEO of Krapf Bus Companies, recently began a two-year term as president of the school bus contractors association, succeeding Todd Monteferrario in the role.

"It is an honor to represent the membership of the National School Transportation Association and a privilege to share my passion for the school bus industry,” Krapf said. “As president of NSTA, I will focus on the energizing goals and initiatives defined in our new strategic plan, and continue to advocate for promoting the school bus as the safest mode of transportation for our nation’s children."

Krapf is also the immediate past president of the Pennsylvania School Bus Association and the 2010 recipient of School Bus Fleet's Contractor of the Year award.

On Friday, NSTA announced that Tiffany Boykin has been named executive director of the association. The appointment follows the recent departure of Ronna Weber.

Boykin, who started with NSTA on Aug. 1, has more than 10 years of experience in operational management, revenue generation, program development, and staff leadership of nonprofit organizations. Most recently, she served as the operational lead on several healthcare clients of an association management company in the Washington, D.C., area.

Another change for NSTA is the location of its headquarters. The association’s office, which was previously in Alexandria, Virginia, is now in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.
