Her official start date was October 15. In her role, she will provide oversight for AALL's day-to-day activities, and is responsible for the management of AALL Headquarters and staff. She will work closely with the Executive Board in formulating policies and setting the strategic direction for the Association, as well as helping imple- ment the policies set by the board. Vani brings to the executive director role more than 14 years of experience in management positions with other professional trade associations. Most recently, Vani served as manager of global education and membership for the National Association of Realtors. Prior to that, she served as director of global business and legislative research with Florida Realtors. In these positions, Vani was tasked with leading each organization's approach to continuing education and certification programming, creating educational programming, and serving as a liaison on public policy between the association and members of the legislature. Her varied responsibilities and cumulative experience in associa- tion management made Vani an ideal choice as our new executive director.
