Lisa Kern joined the staff in 2003 to assist with implementing the ATS communications plan, which includes print and online publications, the website, social media relations, and supporting the programs and services offered to the Association’s membership. She writes, copyedits, and desktop publishes articles for the Association's online newsletter, produces published materials for ATS programs and leadership education events, creates online announcements and registrations for those events, and maintains certain areas of the Association's website and member database. In addition, she strategizes with fellow staff members on how to effectively reach their audiences and promote specific events.
Before arriving at ATS, Kern worked as a staffing manager for The Creative Group and OfficeTeam divisions of Robert Half International and as the marketing and public relations coordinator for the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. She earned a BA in journalism/mass communication with minors in marketing and theater at St. Bonaventure University.
