Six association leaders have been chosen for ASAE’s 2017 Class of Fellows.

The fellows program recognises individual accomplishments and contributions to the American Society of Association Executives and the association sector, and acts as a ‘call to service’.

Matthew D’Uva, executive director, International Association for the Study of Pain and chair of ASAE’s Fellows Selection Committee, said: “On behalf of the selection committee, I am proud to recognise and welcome these deserving candidates to the fellows’ community. They all represent the diversity and vibrancy of association management, and I know that they will continue to make contributions to our profession as they heed the call to service that is a hallmark of the fellows,”

The Class of 2017:

Shawn Boynes, executive director American Association of Anatomists
Gregory Fine, CEO, Turnaround Management Association
Sal Martino, CEO and executive director, American Society of Radiologic Technologists
Mickie Stivers Rops, president & principal consultant, Mickie Rops Consulting LLC
Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO, National Restaurant Association
Mark Vaughan executive VP and chief sales officer Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau

The 2017 Fellows join 256 association industry professionals who have received this designation since the programme's inception in 1986. Serving as role models and ambassadors for the association community, fellows seek out opportunities to serve on boards and committees and participate as speakers, authors, reviewers, and mentors.

The selection process includes: endorsement by a peer; an in-depth application describing the individual's innovation, leadership, and commitment to the profession; an interview with two members of the selection committee; and selection from a group of highly-qualified candidates.
