Lynn Brewer has worked at ABA since 1992. She first started working for membership and Destinations magazine, and is currently responsible for Marketplace, Board Meetings, education programs and professional training seminars.
Working with a highly skilled team of ABA staff members, her significant accomplishments on behalf of ABA include bringing Marketplace management in-house beginning in 1996, setting the stage for continuous growth every year since 1996, to the point where show attendance has doubled since that year. As part of her efforts to make Marketplace the premier group travel event in the motorcoach, tour and travel industries, Lynn and her team have developed a winning combination that offers attendees quality business appointment sessions to create new business growth for their companies, limitless networking opportunities to make connections with the diverse membership that helps define ABA, and continuing education seminars. The professional development seminars at Marketplace have earned that distinction through Lynn's continuing drive to add professional speakers each year, to the point of offering more than 40 different seminars at Marketplace annually.
Brewer manages staff in both ABA's DC headquarters and the Lexington (Ky.) Office, where she has made her home for the past 12 years. She and her team have also built ABA's strategic partnerships with other associations and industry leaders to the point where the number of allied groups ABA works with on an ongoing basis is the most robust in the organization's history.
