• Owner and CEO, Essentient Association Management & Events

Constance has spent the last 34 years giving a hand up to people in the industry. She has guided employees, coached peers through accreditation exams, and offered advice to executives. She willingly shares “what not to do,”  as well as “what to do.” She has also passed on her enthusiasm and expertise to clients, helping several associations launch mentorship programs. Constance believes mentoring creates continuity and connectivity between generations. An active volunteer, she says that mentoring is the natural next step. Why does she mentor others? To give back, to feel good, to help and to learn. And, she adds, because she’s asked. “It is an immutable truth,” she says, “that we all just want to be asked to contribute.”
