Long-time INMA membership director departs, new team appointed
INMA News Blog | 14 February 2022
INMA is undergoing changes in membership leadership for the first time in a decade.
Kris Williams, who has been the membership and sponsorship director for nearly 10 years, is departing INMA to become executive director of the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA), which focuses on emergency medicine physicians-in-training.
Prior to joining INMA, Williams served in membership and communications management for the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Association for Respiratory Care.
During Williams’ tenure at INMA, she oversaw a doubling of corporate memberships, the rise of members from 3,000 to 19,000, automation of membership functions, implementation of multiple membership software upgrades, integration of e-mail automation, and the introduction of analytics software to help INMA better serve its members.
Williams’ departure has prompted a shuffling of membership and sponsorship responsibilities:
- Brooke Dillier, a project manager for INMA who served as the association’s membership and marketing manager in 2005-2006, will succeed Williams as membership director. She formerly served as director of knowledge management at Meeting Professionals International (MPI).
- Dori Trujillo, the association’s customer relations manager, will become membership engagement manager, inclusive of sponsorship management. She previously served in event service and management roles at Hilton Anatole Hotel.
Meanwhile, Marni Drew, a senior marketing executive at Matthews International and Ecova, joined INMA in January as marketing communications manager.
“Kris has made an invaluable contribution to INMA’s growth in the past decade, is a fantastic member of the team, and is one of the longest-tenured employees in the association’s 92-year history,” said Earl J. Wilkinson, executive director and CEO of INMA. “We are fortunate to have high-caliber people like Brooke and Dori who can continue our growth and our commitment to engaging members at the highest level. Marni’s addition is further elevating our ability to serve and communicate with members at scale.”
