Carol J. Carmody Leaves NTSB

Completed Term, Leaving After Five Years

Carol J. Carmody has announced that she is leaving the National Transportation Safety Board after nearly 5 years as a Member. Her last day on the Board was Friday, April 1st, 2005.

Member Carmody joined the Board on June 5, 2000 as the 30th Member of the NTSB.

She served two years as Vice Chairman of the Board from 2001 to 2003, during which time she served twice as the agency's Acting Chairman.

During her tenure on the Board, Ms. Carmody was the on-scene Member at several major transportation accidents, including the aircraft accidents that killed Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan in October 2000 and Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone in October 2002, the derailment of an Amtrak train in Kensington, Maryland in July 2002, and the March 2001 crash of an airliner in Aspen, Colorado that killed all 18 persons aboard.

She chaired Safety Board public hearings on the 2001 crash of American Airlines flight 587 in Queens, New York, and the 2002 derailment of a hazardous materials train in Minot, North Dakota.

Before coming to the NTSB, Member Carmody held posts for 20 years in the aviation community, including serving as the U.S. Representative to the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization in Montreal from 1994 to 1999.

Acting Chairman Mark V. Rosenker said, "I want to thank Carol for her service to the Board. As she departs today, Carol can take great pride in knowing that her direct efforts and those resulting from Board actions over the last 5 years have done much to make our nation's transportation modes significantly safer. I wish her all the best in her future endeavors."
