Tiffany Ann Jackson of Milwaukee, WI, has been hired by WTS International, the association for the advancement of women in transportation, as its Director of Chapter Development. With more than 16 years of association experience, Jackson is charged with bolstering the association’s current 49 chapters with enhanced support programs while seeking additional opportunities within the industry to implement WTS International’s global expansion strategy.
“With the proliferation of transportation and infrastructure initiatives throughout the US and the world, WTS has seen a 22% growth of its membership in just the past two years, despite this period of economic uncertainty and high unemployment overall. To keep pace with this growth, we’ve created the Chapter Development Director role and look forward to Jackson taking the lead,” said WTS President and CEO, Marcia Ferranto. For Ferranto, continuing to build value for members while simultaneously serving more regions where transportation projects are beginning or are well underway, as in Brazil and Johannesburg, South Africa, are an integral part of WTS International’s five-year growth plan.
Jackson has worked for both large and small associations in various capacities including membership management, volunteer-board relations, association branding, and conference development. Prior to joining WTS, Jackson was the Global Member Development Manager for ASQ Global, a subsidiary of the American Society for Quality (ASQ). While at ASQ Global she worked with volunteers and member-driven teams to develop international member units in Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. She’s travelled to 25 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, UAE, and Qatar. She will be assuming her role with WTS on November 8, 2012.
