Dr. Carol Evans Receives NASBLA Award

Dr. Carol Evans from the Center for Asymmetric Warfare was recently presented with the President’s Award from NASBLA, National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, at their 50th annual conference located in Corpus Christi, Texas on Sept. 26-30, 2009.

The NASBLA President, who is currently Richard Moore, selects certain people to honor for their contributions over the past year at every annual meeting. This year, Dr. Carol Evans was chosen as the recipient of this prestigious award. Evans has been an active participant in NASBLA’s Homeland Security and Emergency Response Committee for the past four years, concentrating on the maritime domain. Her work has created new opportunities and partnerships for NASBLA.

“CAW’s mission of building, coordinating and evaluating national level exercises has been a perfect complement to NASBLA’s innovative work in meeting the All-Hazards response gap, and our two organizations have worked on several joint projects on both the regional and national levels,” Capt. Richard Moore told the Ventura County Star. “Dr. Evans has helped us evaluate our progress and advocate on behalf of our own successes.”

Dr. Evans is the lead for the Center for Asymmetric Warfare’s East Coast operations. She is responsible for developing new programs with the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. She is also responsible for the coordination and conduct of homeland defense and security exercises in the region, and for CAW’s educational outreach to NGO’s, universities, and think tanks. Dr. Evans has been at the forefront of integrating and developing weapons of mass destruction and counter-terrorist decision support systems for Homeland Security applications. She has helped lead several major Homeland Security exercises and has served with two Directors of Central Intelligence on their Science and Technology Advisory Panel, as member of the Defense Science Board, Office of the Secretary of Defense, and as advisor to the National Ground Intelligence Center, Department of the Army.
