Member Spotlights

NYSAE members come from all walks of life in the association community; small organizations with one-person staffs to large organizations with 100 staff members, chapter based, professional and trade associations, hospitality partners or other vendor services, 501 (c3)s, 501 (c6)s or both. Below are some spotlights of our members showing how they got involved in the field and what brings them to work everyday. You may find that everyone has a unique path that they took to get where they are today. Do you have a similar story on your adventure to NYSAE? Please email Katherine Hidchenko at info@nysaenet.org with a subject line of "NYSAE Member Spotlight" to set up an interview time.
