“During her 18 years with AAMA, Janice strived to learn and understand all AAMA operations, programs and services. That knowledge has been transferred into countless improvements in AAMA procedures and productivity, making this a well-deserved promotion,” says AAMA President and CEO Rich Walker.
Yglesias’s role will involve creating, communicating and implementing the vision, mission, values, beliefs and strategic goals of the organization, as directed by the president and CEO, and the board of directors, as well as assisting in planning, organizing and directing staff, programs and activities of the association. She also will oversee, guide, direct and evaluate the work of other executive leaders including directors and managers of the association and will determine ways to reduce costs, increase revenues and improve overall company performance for association products and services. In addition, Yglesias will establish internal and external relationships, and work on other specific assignments.
Walker went on to say that Yglesias is “a tireless worker who always finds time to consult with members and staff, extending her ethical standards, personal integrity, strong leadership and teamworking skills.”
Yglesias celebrated 19 years at AAMA in February.
