National Association of Attorneys General
When Mark Anderson joined the NAAG staff as director of information technology in 2005, he felt as though he had that opportunity to make a difference. He uses his myriad of tech savvy skills to ensure that all communications are running smoothly and to maintain the entire computer system infrastructure.
“I enjoy the interaction we have with the Attorneys General community and serving the needs of our members and our internal staff,” he said.
Prior to his work at NAAG, Mark served as the director of information technology at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.
Mark became interested in computers when he was young and spent countless hours working with and programming a commodore 64 that he received for his birthday. He went on to spend many years in the U.S. Army, including tours with the 3rd U.S. Infantry, The Old Guard, stationed at Ft. Myer, Va., and the 1/508th Airborne Infantry in Panama.
As a member of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Salute Guns Platoon, he was responsible for rendering honors to visiting foreign dignitaries and heads of state at the White House, Pentagon and elsewhere in the Washington D.C. area.
When the 1/508th Infantry was deactivated in 1995, his computer and communications skills came into play, serving as a mortar man whose main duty was programming and utilizing the mortar ballistic computer and communications.
Mark grew up on a farm in Iowa, but now resides in Northern Virginia. He received his master’s degree in business administration with a minor in information support management from Shenandoah University.
Outside of the office, Marks enjoys fly fishing, camping and other outside activities.
