Wednesday, April 5, 2023

[LEXINGTON, KY] The National Association of State Chief Administrators (NASCA) announced the appointment of Mark Scott as an Alternate on its Executive Committee. Secretary Scott has served as the State of West Virginia’s primary member since his appointment to Cabinet Secretary of the West Virginia Department of Administration effective November 1, 2021.  

“I am very grateful to be chosen to help lead NASCA. Having input in the direction our association goes in the future is something I look forward to being a part of,” said Scott.  “We are constantly attempting to improve our department in West Virginia and being able to share and receive best practices from colleagues is what NASCA is all about.” 

Prior to his appointment to Cabinet Secretary, Scott served in county government as the Commission President of the Randolph County Commission from January 8, 2017, until October 31, 2021, and as an Elkins City Councilman from April 2001 until he was elected to the Randolph County Commission in 2016. 

As a County Commission President in a county without a county administrator, Scott ran many of the day-to-day operations of the county. In addition to his role as the County Commission president, Scott owned an Allstate Insurance business for 23 years, which had locations throughout North Central West Virginia. He began his insurance career in 1989 and retired from that role in early 2021.
