Paul Bellantone, CAE, president and CEO of PPAI, has been elected to the Texas Society of Association Executives’ (TSAE) Board of Directors. Bellantone is one of five new board members who will begin a three-year term when the full board of directors is recognized on September 29 at the TSAE New Ideas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi, Texas.

“I look forward to working side by side with my professional colleagues and the TSAE staff to help grow and advocate for the association management profession,” says Bellantone. “I especially appreciate the support of PPAI’s Board and team members affording me the time and resources to contribute to TSAE and enhance our professional community.”

The TSAE board is comprised of 19 members and meets quarterly. The board consists of the chairman, chair-elect and past chairman, as well as 11 elected members from the association executive member categories, four elected members from the affiliate member category and the president of TSAE.

Beth Brooks, CAE, president and CEO of TSAE, says, “We are delighted to have Paul join the TSAE Board. His skill set is vast and I know that his contributions will be of great benefit to TSAE, and to our continued growth.”
