Andoscia appointed to board overseeing NBC

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Gov. Gina Raimondo has appointed Lisa Andoscia, president of North Providence-based Rosewood Consulting Inc., to a two-year term on the Board of Commissioners tasked with overseeing operations of the Narragansett Bay Commission.

NBC was created by the Rhode Island General Assembly in 1980 to reduce pollution and improve the water quality of Narragansett Bay and its tributaries. In 1987, Narragansett Bay was designated an Estuary of National Significance by the United States Congress.

The NBC is governed by a 19-member Board of Commissioners and is empowered with responsibilities ranging from ensuring that the NBC operates with a balanced budget to approving contracts for improving and sustaining the treatment facilities and wastewater collection system.

Andoscia is a successful grant writer for numerous local communities, including North Providence, Smithfield and Cumberland.
