Kathy Bradley Selected to Attend ASAE’s NextGen Association Summit

(McLean, Va., July 14, 2015) Coulter is pleased to announce that Kathy Bradley, Coulter director of fundraising & partnerships, was selected by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) to participate in the 2015 NextGen Association Summit. The program brings together leading young association professionals and established association thought leaders to specifically focus on the state of young professionals in associations and the association community.

The Summit will engage participants in meaningful conversations about the unique needs, perspectives and interests of young professionals, trends facing the association industry, and the role of young professionals in the association community. Through rich conversation, these diverse leaders will document insights to develop new association practices that help associations better engage and serve young professionals.

“We are thrilled that Kathy was invited to represent Coulter and participate in this prestigious program,” said Erin M. Fuller, FASAE, CAE, Coulter president. “Throughout her tenure at Coulter, Kathy has worked with a broad array of clients and her outreach continues to generate substantial funding year after year. Kathy’s expertise will serve as an asset to the NextGen Summit’s significant conversations around young professionals.”

Bradley joined the Coulter team in 2009 as a resource development specialist and has since been promoted to resource development manager and director of fundraising & partnerships. Bradley has worked with many Coulter clients in helping to build strategies and conduct outreach that has resulted in millions of dollars of new funding. Prior to her tenure at Coulter, Bradley spent more than a decade honing her skills in both the fundraising and events areas, executing events ranging from 20 to 7,000 people. She managed sponsorship, underwriting and exhibit sales for tradeshows with more than 350+ participating supporting organizations.

Bradley’s participation in ASAE’s NextGen Association Summit follows Coulter’s strong representation within the association community’s recognition programs. In 2013, Alison Teitelbaum, MS, MPH, CAE and Amy Lestition Burke, MA, CAE were selected to participate in the NextGen Association Summit.
