Susan Mosedale, CAE, has joined ASIS as the new Chief Global Member Engagement Officer. In this role, she will lead the Society's membership department including chapters, councils, customer service, the foundation, and government relations.
Just four days after coming on board, Susan attended the ASIS European Conference in Milan. This “boot camp” introduction to the Society provided an opportunity to not only meet the ASIS team in Brussels but to hear firsthand from members about challenges they face and opportunities for ASIS to make a difference. She notes it’s her goal to ensure “our value proposition is realized by all members across the globe.”
Susan brings a strong track record of serving global associations and their diverse constituencies to her role. Previously, she served as executive vice president for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, which represents nearly 5,000 members in 90 countries worldwide. She directed their members service programs, oversaw their global expansion strategy, and led development, implementation, and evaluation of the association’s strategic and business plans.
Susan is joined by Teshia Birts, CAE, who starts 10 April as the new Director of Member and Volunteer Engagement. Teshia joins ASIS from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), where she served as Senior Director of Membership Development and Chapter Relations. Here she developed successful engagement programs with 250+ component organizations including chapters and special interest groups and increased engagement with volunteer leaders, partner organizations and the general membership.
“I look forward to helping our member engagement team create innovative ways to increase member engagement with the Society,” says Teshia.
She brings over 15 years of experience as an association director in various member engagement roles. Before joining the NSTA, Teshia served as Director and Senior Vice President, Constituent Organization Resources for the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), where she managed the development and delivery of resources to more than 100 component organizations. She has also earned her Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation and was selected as a Diversity Executive Leadership Program Scholar by the American Society of Association Executives.
