New York, August 4, 2016 – The Association of Junior Leagues International today announced that Amber Levy has joined AJLI as Director of Membership, a new position. In that role, she will be responsible for leading the implementation of the Association’s Membership Model Rollout as part of a multi-year, multi-disciplinary strategy for The Junior League of the future.
Ms. Levy is a seasoned association executive with deep experience in membership engagement. She comes to AJLI from RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc., where she was the Director of Membership and Constituent Programs. Earlier, she held marketing and sales positions with two major membership organizations, the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board and the San Diego Tourism Authority, as well as the Hyland Group, a firm specializing in premier meeting and convention properties.
Susan Danish, AJLI’s Executive Director, said, “Amber’s experience working for membership organizations over the last 15 years will be an important resource as we implement our new Membership Model.

Ms. Levy said, “As the Association representing 291 independent Junior Leagues, AJLI has a unique position among women’s volunteer organizations. I look forward to working with the AJLI leadership team to develop and launch member-centric programs that re-engage members, pique the interests of next-generation members, and position the organization for robust growth in the future.”
