Nyman Elected to Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors Executive Committee

Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have elected David R. Nyman, chairman of the Board of Supervisors for East Rockhill Township in Bucks County, to a three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee.

The election took place during PSATS’ 94th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 17-20 in Hershey. This is the largest municipal event of its kind in the state, with close to 4,000 attendees. The conference attracted township officials from every county in Pennsylvania except Philadelphia, which has no townships.

The seven-member Executive Committee, the association’s five officers, and the immediate past president make up the Executive Board, which is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association. The board meets frequently throughout the year to oversee association business and plan new projects that will benefit member townships.

The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors represents Pennsylvania’s 1,454 townships of the second class and is committed to preserving and strengthening township government and securing greater visibility and involvement for townships in the state and federal political arenas. Townships of the second class cover 95 percent of Pennsylvania’s land mass and represent more residents — 5.5 million — than any other type of political subdivision in the commonwealth.

Nyman serves on the association’s Finance Committee and previously was a member of the Resolutions Committee, the Conference Planning Committee, and the Townships Between 5,000 and 10,000 Population Committee.

Nyman, a retired teacher, works as a municipal management consultant. He serves on the township planning commission and previously was the vice chairman of the board of supervisors and a member of the Parks and Recreation Board. He is also a board member and past Resolutions Committee chair of the Bucks County Association of Township Officials and was a recipient of the county association’s George Metzger Service Award.

Nyman serves on the Bucks County Planning Commission, the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging Board, and the Bucks County Transportation Management Association Board of Directors and Executive Committee. He is a representative/facilitator on the Pennridge Area Coordinating Committee, a board member and past president of the Pennridge Chamber of Commerce, chair of the Pennridge Community Senior Center Advisory Board, and vice president of the Bucks County Association for Retired and Senior Citizens Board.

In addition to being a youth soccer coach, he is a member of the Police Chiefs Association of Bucks County and the Newtown and Hay Creek Historical Societies. Previous affiliations include Route 113 Heritage Corridor Task Force, Pennridge School District Tax Study Commission, Bucks County Comprehensive Plan Committee, the Pennridge Wastewater Treatment Authority Board, and the Bucks County Historical Society. He was previously treasurer of the Pennridge Republican Club and a member of the board of the Deep Run Valley Sports Association. He is a former youth baseball and basketball coach and is the recipient of numerous service awards and citations.
