Katie Keel, MPA, CAE
Strategic Director & Senior Account Executive
Creative Thinker | Authentic | Team Developer
I bring 25 years of association and nonprofit management experience to my Role at Bostrom and serve as the Executive Director to two clients: the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine and the Legal Value Network. I also serve as Senior Advisor to the Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education. In my role, I forge close partnerships with the Boards of Directors, guiding association leaders to make data-driven decisions while using best practices in association management. I lead my teams efficiently and effectively, encouraging each team member to utilize their skill sets to advance the mission of our clients. The best part of my job is working with association leaders to help guide their organizations to success. It’s rewarding to provide my client leaders with the tools and information they need to be effective in their roles.
Prior to joining the Bostrom team, I was an account executive at Administrative Systems, Inc., an association management company that was acquired by Bostrom in 2013. In the early 2000s, I journeyed from AmeriCorps Promise Fellow to Executive Director in the ten years I lived in Portland, Oregon where I was part of a team of business and state government leaders who founded a statewide nonprofit organization to help at-risk youth. I received my Master of Public Administration from Portland State University with an emphasis in nonprofit management and the Certified Association Executive credential from ASAE. I am a member of the Association Forum of Chicago and the American Society of Association Executives.
