Join us in welcoming Dawn Mills, Integrity's new Association Executive!
Dawn has been an Association Executive for more than 15 years, eight of which were spent at Weintraub Advertising. We were lucky to have Dawn begin at our St. Louis web development company when the two teams merged this January.
In her current role, Dawn enjoys working with the various associations and playing an important role in fulfilling each one's mission.
"Most importantly, I gain cross-industry experience, develop relationships with diverse leaders and passionate volunteers, and am challenged to search for improved processes and present creative ideas," she says.
Dawn's work also periodically fulfills her passion for traveling. While originally born in St. Louis, Dawn lived in several states when she was younger including New Hampshire, Maine, Wyoming and Texas. Her family returned to St. Louis where she was ultimately raised, but her family's moves early in life inspired a lifelong love of experiencing new places. Earlier this year, she visited Los Angeles where she coordinated and managed a two-day annual conference.
Alas, while Dawn doesn't get to spend every day in sunny California, her work still keeps her on her toes. In her role as association executive, she enjoys an active project management process involving monthly board meetings, speaker events/luncheons, golf tournaments, trade shows and more. She is frequently multitasking and working on multiple projects at any given time.
When Dawn is not managing associations, she loves going to concerts and music festivals in various venues across the country. Her favorite one is a bit out of the ordinary — it's the Jam Cruise, a music festival at sea!
"It is amazing to be out in the middle of nowhere with so many musicians and fans, and at the same time, travel to different countries," says Dawn.
This festival also gives Dawn the opportunity to work with Positive Legacy, a nonprofit organization that coordinates environmental and humanitarian projects for destination events.
"It is a great way to have fun and make a positive impact on people and the environment," says Dawn.
We're excited to have Dawn as part of our Integri-team!
