Executive Director

A New Role for a New Millennium

Cindy Clark
Executive Director

On November 1, I became the Executive Director of UPA.  For those of you who may not be familiar with the role, my job is to coordinate the administrative aspects of the organization, making certain that it runs smoothly and effectively.

Working with me as UPA's Administrative Manager will be Judy Janes. 

Although my job will evolve over time, examples the types of activities I will undertake include:

  • General association management
  • Assistance with budgeting and governance
  • Assistance with UPA's publication production (newsletters, journals, directories, and web site)
  • Board, committee and volunteer coordination
  • Chapter relations
  • Database management
  • Membership services

I have been working closely with President Mary Beth Rettger and with the Board.  We will be getting together in mid-January for the semi-annual Board meeting at which the new Board members you elected this year, will join the group.

The UPA office address is:

230 East Ohio Street, Suite 400
Chicago, IL 60611-3265,

New phone is 312.596.5298 and fax is 312.644.8557.

You can contact me at office@upassoc.org

I look forward to working with you as we bring this organization into the new millennium.
