HBA staff

HBA is an almost entirely volunteer-led organization, but we do have a few staff members to support and guide our volunteer leaders and provide support for the organization's growth and success. HBA's staff are broken into three pillars:

  • Stakeholder relations: serving our members, volunteers and companies
  • Global services: supporting HBA's finance, operations and IT needs
  • Value offerings: developing HBA Central programs/events (webinars, flagship events, etc) and marketing all HBA offerings

All current staff members, their biographies and contact information is available by clicking here.
