Sarah Bilissis, executive director for the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) has a strong background in the association industry, having worked with two association management firms prior to joining AMC in 2008. Calm, level-headed, and focused, Sarah believes in listening to her clients’ needs to create an optimal strategic plan to produce the best possible organizational outcomes.
Sarah is proud of building a very cohesive, trusting core team of just eight people. She strongly believes in fostering collaborative relationships through a respectful leadership style that incorporates open communication and an element of fun. Always striving for preparedness, she makes anticipated (and even unanticipated) challenges known to give enough time to plan and meet goals, regardless of obstacles.
Sarah is passionate about working with healthcare and scientific associations and having the opportunity to improve lives. That notion comes across easily in working with ACVP as its members are dedicated to protecting animal, human, and environmental health.
When she’s not at AMC, Sarah enjoys spending time outside: swimming, snowboarding, or practicing yoga. She is a frequent traveler and enjoys going to concerts and festivals.
