Executive Director

David C. Harvey, MSW, ACC, is executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, assuming his position in October of 2016. 

From 1994-2007, David served as founding executive director of AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth & Families, a national association representing maternal, child and youth HIV care programs from throughout the U.S. Under his leadership, the organization worked to support efforts to eliminate mother to child HIV transmission, recognize the distinct care needs of women and youth, and was a leading national advocacy voice for consumers of services. David also served as president and CEO of ProLiteracy from 2007-2012, where he oversaw program and advocacy efforts for 2,000 community-based members in the U.S. and in 30 countries, working to bring new awareness about the adult literacy crisis. From 2013-2016, David also led LIFT-DC, a local direct service anti-poverty organization. Through his consulting firm, Chandler Harvey Coaching, he has worked with nonprofits and individuals providing interim nonprofit leadership and executive coaching.

David started his career in Congress and the House of Commons in London, experiences that helped him to later organize successful campaigns to influence federal legislation. He has spoken frequently at domestic and international conferences, served on national boards and blue ribbon panels, and in 2012 was appointed by Secretary Clinton to represent ProLiteracy to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO.  He is a graduate of Clark University and Catholic University of America and has authored over 20 peer-reviewed articles and chapters and various other publications. 

In addition to being a social worker, David is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and board member of the International Coach Federation – Metro DC Charter Chapter, where he co-leads professional development.
