Success by Association - July/August 2016 - (Page 33)

staffupdate Introducing BriAnna Walker I am thrilled to be your new Member Services Manager! I have a diverse professional background in sales and marketing from my previous roles, supporting sales teams in the television, radio, and telecommunication industries. Working in sales taught me the importance of going the extra mile to understand client needs - signed contracts equal sales numbers, but relationship building and solving a client's problems ensure continued revenue flow for both parties. A phrase used in my sorority is "Membership makes me smile." My mission is to make your membership experience innovative, dynamic, and resourceful! With a strong passion for professional development and community engagement, I am ready to get to work! BriAnna Walker is a native of Garner, North Carolina. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from WinstonSalem State University. This fall, she will be a student in the Raleigh Citizens Leadership Academy. BriAnna is a seven year member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Chi Rho Omega Chapter, where she currently serves as Financial Secretary and Think HBCU Chairman. advertiserindex Association Payments of America/Electronic Payments, Inc.......................................... 24 Charlestowne Hotels............................................................. 10, 36 Eisenman & Associates, Inc. .......................................................17 Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau................. 30 Friday Center, The................................................................ 37, 39 Goldsboro Travel & Tourism ........................................................9 Great Wolf Lodge.................................................................. 33, 36 Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau........... 13, 36 Greenville Marriott .........................................................................9 Greenville-Pitt County Convention & Visitors Bureau ...........................................36, 40 Hickory Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau ..................2, 36 Jordan Price Wall Gray Jones & Carlton ............................... 23 Kanuga Conference and Retreat Center ......................... 31, 36 Kingsmill Resort ..............................................................................5 Leaders' Haven, LLC, The ......................................................... 23 Marina Inn at Grande Dunes ............................................... 15, 37 New Bern - Craven County Convention & Visitors Bureau ........................................... 34, 37 Ramada Plaza Fayetteville ..........................................................17 TCS Software, Inc. ............................................................... 34, 37 Tides Folly Beach.......................................................................... 21 Visit Winston-Salem .................................................................... 27 Our only success is yours.
