Industry Engagement

Professional associations provide community, peer and client networking opportunities, and a forum for development of leadership skills. They can help us to learn best practices and set industry benchmarks. They’re a great forum for philanthropic engagement and help us to engage more deeply in the industry worlds that interest us.

Joanna has been involved in a broad range of professional associations throughout her career. She’s been an active committee member, has served in leadership and advisory roles, and has been recognized for her achievements.
