It gives me great pleasure to announce that the ISPI Board of Directors has selected our next President!
Dr Nancy Burns, CPT, MBA, PMP, CAEL, and ISPI’s current Treasurer will become our President-elect following the business meeting that we hold in Tucson at our annual conference May 2020.
Nancy is the founder/president of Crain Burns Associates LLC. As a Certified Performance Technologist, she leads individuals, teams and organizations through strategies, identifying opportunities that achieve effective solutions. Her dissertation research connected aspects of leadership, communication and influence styles that enhance self-reflection and collaboration with others.
During her career in an automotive/financial services organization, Nancy worked her way through the field organization to a position in the firm’s executive office (from the “mail room to the board room”). She has worked in operations, accounting, project and information technology management, as well as a liaison with business Executives for strategic planning and technology requirements.
After “retirement” from the corporate world, Dr. Burns moved into academia as an instructor and Teaching/ Learning Coordinator. In this role, she developed courses, mentored faculty and enhanced courses in the Global Project Management curriculum. She has taught Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Organizational Behavior, Management (Strategic/ Human Resource/Operations), Philosophy of American Enterprise, Training in Organizations and Project Management at the University level.
Dr. Burns is active in her community and has served on several non-profit boards. She is the chair of the steering committee for a rural community visioning implementation.
Nancy joined ISPI (International Society and Michigan Chapter) in 2003. She served as VP pf Programs in Michigan, CPT Chair/President of the Capella University Chapter and Program Chair/Society Liaison of the Tennessee Chapter. She is a CPT Reviewer for the international organization.

Please join me in congratulating Nancy!
