We welcome Joseph “Joe” Handy to the NBMBAA® family as President and CEO, effective October 5, 2020. Joe most recently served as the President of Georgia Aquarium Foundation, having served as Georgia Aquarium's President and Chief Operating Officer since 2017. He brings a strong history of leadership along with more than 20 years of experience in cultural institutions. We believe Joe will take the organization to the next level bringing vision, thought leadership and unparalleled fundraising expertise.

Joe was born and raised in New York, where he graduated with honors from The College of New Rochelle with a Liberal Arts Degree and a concentration in Political Science. He later went on to earn his Executive MBA from Kennesaw State University. While in New York, Joe spent nine years at the American Museum of Natural History and helped launch the Rose Center for Earth and Space.

Anticipating his new position as President, Joe said, “I am excited and thrilled to be a part of such an amazing organization. The work that has been accomplished over the years has set a strong foundation. I am honored to work with a team that will continue to build on that foundation to make us even stronger. I look forward to getting to know all of you and doing the work that will benefit our community for generations to come.”

Bruce Thompson, NBMBAA® Interim President & CEO, will remain with the Association in a consultancy role through the end of the year working on growth and technology initiatives. We extend a special thank you to Bruce for being an agent of change and leading the Association through a tumultuous 2020. He has set the Association up for a successful conference and beyond!

We remain committed to keeping the Association strong, continuing as a leader among professional member-based organizations and developing partnerships that ​benefit our stakeholders. We are looking forward to what Joe will bring to the NBMBAA® as we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year.
