Burns to leave CATT: Noah Markoff to take over helm

Joe Burns will step down from his position as executive director at the Contractors’ Association of Truckee Tahoe (CATT) next month after more than two years with the organization.

According to a news release submitted to the Sierra Sun, Burns’ “decision (to leave CATT) is based solely on his desire to pursue other career interests.”

Burns was on vacation at press time and unavailable for comment.

He will remain with CATT until January, when Truckee-resident Noah Markoff will step in as executive director.

Markoff said he expects CATT to make some changes in the near future.

“We’re headed toward growing staff in the future,” he said. “As the community grows and our membership grows, I assume we’ll grow, as well.”

Typically CATT has been staffed by two positions – a bookkeeper/administrator and an executive director.

Markoff is a meeting planner and facilitator with Growth Management Center and has worked with many nonprofit organizations in the Truckee-North Tahoe area, including the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce, Truckee Tahoe Seniors Council and the Workforce Housing Association of Truckee Tahoe.

He also had prior experience working with CATT.

“Historically, I had some familiarity with CATT and their inner-workings,” Markoff said.

CATT is a registered political action committee that supports the building and housing industries in Truckee and North Tahoe.
