CWEA is pleased to introduce the Director of Education, Amy Lai.

Amy has over 20 years’ experience in professional development, event management, and marketing. She has led the education and branding initiatives for private businesses, non-profit organizations, and associations – including the California Transit Association and the California Coalition on Workers’ Compensation.

As a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) who strives to deliver engaging learning opportunities, Amy is excited to bring a fresh approach to CWEA education. She looks forward to building strong relationships with leaders, members, and other stakeholders.
