Andrea L. Garbon
My name is Andrea Garbon and I have had the privilege of being a lifelong member of the National Slovak Society. I am a magna cum laude graduate from Seton Hill University located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. My degree is a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Marketing with an emphasis in Accounting.
I am currently employed as the Tax Collector for Mount Pleasant Township in Westmoreland County Pennsylvania. As the tax collector I am responsible for preparing and collecting tax payments, along with distributing the monies to the appropriate authorities. I perform all necessary accounting functions along with generating monthly and year end reports in order to comply with regulations mandated by the state and local authorities. I am also responsible for maintaining the office that I work out of along with all of its finances, daily business operations and public relations. Prior to my employment as Tax Collector, I was employed by Latrobe Brewing Company in Latrobe, Pennsylvania for 15 years where I was responsible for various production and quality control operations until the company was sold and operations were suspended. Additional employment that has coincided with the above include Eat ‘n Park Hospitality Group and United Parcel Service (UPS) where I have had the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and abilities necessary in the business and its operations along with establishing communication skills, and a strong work ethic all of which can be an integral part of the opportunities encountered throughout life.
My family and I come from a long line of NSS Life Members. This will be the fourth convention at which I am a delegate and have been in attendance at other conventions as a guest. I am currently the secretary for Assembly 737 in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania and an auditor for Region 5 McMurray, Pennsylvania having held these positions for several years. And now I serve the NSS as a member of the Board of Directors.
