Debbie Trueblood Recognized as a Fellow of ASAE


We are delighted to announce that Debbie Trueblood, MSW IOM CAE FASAE—senior consultant at AMC—is being recognized as a Fellow of the American Society of Association Executives (FASAE). 

The Fellows program is one of ASAE’s highest honors, recognizing individuals who have made a significant impact on the association community through exemplary volunteer service and leadership, extraordinary accomplishments, and other major contributions to ASAE and the profession of association management.

Debbie has been an active leader in the association management community for more than 20 years, serving as an executive director for multiple healthcare and professional associations and holding various volunteer leadership positions, including chair of Association Forum’s Welcoming Environment Committee, member of the ASAE Executive Management Council, and past chair of the ASAE Ethics Committee, a role in which she led the team to publish a national ethics toolkit for associations.

As a senior consultant at AMC, Debbie has parlayed the vast knowledge she’s acquired throughout her career to being a trusted strategic partner to associations looking to bring DEI into focus or traversing ethical or economic issues.

“We are very proud of Debbie and excited to see her recognized for her many contributions to the association community, says AMC CEO Steve Smith. “Debbie is an agile senior leader who stands out for her strategic foresight, ethical insights, and strong advocacy for DEI. She is also the third AMC staff member to be recognized as a Fellow of ASAE, joining Mark Engle and Wendy-Jo Toyama, in achieving this honor. We are thrilled to have her leadership and expertise at AMC.”

“I am honored to be one of the 13 professionals accepted into the 2022 class of ASAE Fellows and the third fellow at AMC” says Trueblood. “Associations have seen many challenges the past 2 years, and I look forward to helping influence a positive future by highlighting the importance and benefits of DEI and helping them navigate the ever-changing economic landscape.”
