“I’m an engineer at heart and am energized by challenges that open doors for me to think creatively and shape innovative solutions,” Meyers says. “The Society is committed to evolving its strategic direction and identifying and pursuing new opportunities and I’m thrilled to be joining.”

As chief strategy officer, Meyers will oversee the alignment of the Society’s strategic planning and governance process to include shaping new initiatives and evolving the Society’s strategic plan in collaboration with governance leaders.
