Henry Wallmeyer Named as National Club Association President & CEO
(Washington, D.C., September 11, 2015) – Henry Wallmeyer, a seasoned association executive with a strong background in legislative and regulatory issues, membership and association growth, today was named president and chief executive officer of the National Club Association, the Washington, D.C.-based trade association serving the private club industry.
In announcing the appointment, NCA Board Chairman Philip R. Kiester said, “Henry will bring innovation, energy and valuable experience to NCA. His background in the club industry and association management are a perfect match to NCA’s priorities for the future.”
Wallmeyer, who joins NCA from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) where he was vice president of membership, said, “It’s an honor to return to the private club industry and carry on the great work of Sue Wegrzyn at NCA. I look forward to establishing relationships throughout the industry and working with the NCA team to grow the association’s presence, programs and advocacy for the betterment of the private club industry.”
Prior to the NAM, Wallmeyer was deputy director at the International Parking Institute and served in leadership positions with other associations, including the American Academy of Otolaryngology, the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association and the Club Managers Association of America.
Wallmeyer, who begins his new role on September 29, 2015, succeeds Susanne R. Wegrzyn, who announced her retirement last November. Wegrzyn retires from NCA after 22 years, serving as executive vice president and since 2002, as president and CEO.
Remarked Kiester, “As our CEO, Sue not only strengthened NCA’s role as the primary advocate for the private club industry, but also became known as a vital source of information for the club industry. NCA’s constituent clubs are the ‘best of the best’ and their belief in NCA’s mission under her leadership is a tribute to her sustained efforts on our behalf.”
For more than 50 years, the National Club Association (NCA), a Washington, D.C.-based trade association, has served as the primary advocate for private clubs, representing their interests on Capitol Hill, in the regulatory agencies, in the statehouses and in the courthouses. In addition, NCA serves as an invaluable resource for professional and volunteer club leaders, providing resources on industry trends, legislative and regulatory issues, governance best practices, operational issues, and ways to strengthen club leadership through its publications and educational programs.
