CHICAGO — February 24, 2020 — NAMA’s Vice President of Programs and Services Lindsey Nelson has been recognized with the Association Forum’s Association Professional Achievement Award, as part of the Forum’s Gala which features broad-based industry recognition.
The Association Professional Achievement Award is presented to an association professional member - not a Chief Executive Officer - for exemplary service and outstanding accomplishments in association management. This award reflects a high level of commitment to professional growth and personal pride in the association management industry.
Nelson, who previously was named one of the Association Forum’s “40 under 40” honorees, has been in service to NAMA for eight years. During her tenure, which began with a role to spearhead the most comprehensive Capital Campaign to date for NAMA, she has been given positions of increasing responsibilities. In her current role, as a member of NAMA’s senior management team, Lindsey oversees several functional departments, including meeting & events which organizes the association’s signature events including the NAMA Show, Coffee Tea & Water Show and the NAMA Executive Forum.
According to the Association Forum, “Nelson is being recognized for her strong investment in the field of association management, demonstrated management, demonstrated volunteer service and willingness to model leadership behavior.”
“I am humbled by this recognition from my association peers and am grateful for the many opportunities I’ve had to give back to the profession that has given me so much,” said Lindsey.
The award will be presented at the Association Forum’s Honors Gala, scheduled for June 18 in Chicago, to celebrate the professional and honor the leaders who strengthen it.
