Bostrom is proud to announce Kellie Braband as a 2019 Forty Under 40® award recipient by the Association Forum and USAE weekly newspaper.

The Forty Under 40 awards program, established in 2013, recognizes 40 up-and-coming association or nonprofit professionals who are under the age of 40, demonstrate high potential for success in leadership roles, and exhibit a strong commitment to the association management profession.

“Kellie has done an incredible job at Bostrom advancing our clients’ missions in innovative and creative ways,” says Randy Lindner, President of Bostrom. “We are so excited that Kellie has been selected as a top performer among her peers by Association Forum and USAE.”

Braband started at Bostrom in 2015 as a program manager and quickly rose to account executive in 2018, stepping into a leadership role as the executive director for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).

“I feel so honored to be recognized by the Association Forum and USAE at this point in my career,” says Braband. “The passion I have for our clients’ missions and the ability to support diversity and inclusion initiatives within AASECT and Bostrom has made my work so rewarding.”

Braband will be recognized in a special Forty Under 40 Awards Reception on Monday, December 16th which includes a private awards ceremony. Continued recognition in the presence of more than 2,000 association and meetings executives will occur at the Holiday Showcase Keynote and Networking Brunch.
