MASAE has transformed our Mid-Year Meeting into a series of webinars. Our goal is to provide association executives and their teams with information to help navigate “the new normal” during this uncertain time. There is no charge to participate in this webinar.
The COVID-19 Crisis is unprecedented in its impact on public health and the economy. Still, lessons learned during the 2008 recession can help leaders navigate the short, mid, and long-term impact. During this session, Sharon Rice, association consultant and former executive vice president at APICS, now the Association for Supply Chain Professionals, will discuss how the association’s leadership was able to successfully steer the organization through the recession and position it for future growth.
Sharon Rice elevates the work of nonprofits and associations by creating strategies that ensure relevance and longevity while advancing their missions. Sharon focuses primarily on strategy development and executive planning to assist clients in meeting their goals.
She is well-experienced in the areas of leadership and workforce development, strategic and business planning, growth strategies and comprehensive product planning, international strategies, complex project management, collaboration support (mergers & partnerships), education (certification, training & conferences), research and content development planning.
Sharon has a depth of association management experience, most recently as the vice president of strategy at APICS, the Chicago-based association for supply chain management. Before joining APICS in 2007, Sharon served as both an association executive and a consultant to nonprofit organizations at the American Express Tax and Business Services (later acquired by McGladrey). She also worked at the American Society of Clinical Pathology; the National Association of Minority Engineering Program Administrators; and the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants.
Sharon speaks and writes on topics related to association management and strategic planning. She is a former recipient of the Association Forum Supplier Partner Award recognized for her service as a consultant serving the Chicago association community. She holds bachelor degrees in political science and peace studies from Manchester University.
