While in Las Vegas, Welcome the New ASA Staff


Beth Moran

Beth Moranjoined the ASA executive staff in January 2011 as the Program Assistant for the Minority and Student Affairs Program. Born and raised in Shavertown, PA, I recently moved to Montgomery County, MD. I graduated from McDaniel College in 2008, where I earned a BA in sociology While at McDaniel, I served as a Class Representative then Class President my senior year, for which I was awarded the Senior Leadership Award. Prior to joining the ASA, I worked for a facility management company helping with daily administrative tasks and sales support for the furniture division. The administrative and customer service skills that I acquired from this previous position have proven important to my work in a membership association, more specifically with programs such as the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP), the Honors Program, and the Student Forum Advisory Board. I enjoy working with the student members of ASA and the faculty members associated with the students, and I am looking forward to putting faces to the names at the Annual Meeting in August. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband (of a few weeks) and our dog at the park, and I am a hobbyist photographer and painter.


Lee Morris, III

Lee Morris, III joined the ASA in late February as the Meetings and Exhibits Coordinator. My primary responsibilities are the management of the ASA Annual Meeting Exhibits, the logistics of the Annual Meeting (Section Receptions and DAN), and Employment Services. My goal is to provide our members and partners exceptional customer service. I have more than a decade of experience working in meeting planning, although ASA is my first non-corporate membership association. I enjoy meeting planning because I love an abstract idea becoming a physical, live, and tangible event. I like to see the pieces come together. Once on site, I enjoy interacting with the membership and get a clearer understanding of who we serve and what they do. I am a native Washingtonian. This year I celebrate my 20-year high school reunion. I hold a BS degree in Accounting from Strayer University. The only boy with three sisters, I love to spend time with my extended family. In my spare time, I enjoy movies, concerts, and reading poetry.


Jordan Robison

Jordan Robison started as the ASA Information Assistant in March. I am ASA’s new Governance Information Assistant. I share some of the workload with Justin Lini, ASA’s Governance Associate. However, my primary focus is on assisting with the logistics of each ASA Awards Committee. I also help organize ASA’s elections and support the work of the association’s governing committees. I am a native of the DC metro area. Before joining ASA, I served in the Armed Forces. In 2009, I finished nine years of military service, where I reached the rank of Sergeant. I recently moved back to the Washington, DC area after living the last four years in Ohio, where I received two BAs (Cum Laude) from the Ohio State University—one in English and the other in History, with a focus on Latin American History. Since Justin is from Michigan we often have philosophical debates or the occasional fist fight over which state is better at college football. OSU is usually the victor. During my free time, I enjoy writing, playing my guitar, and hiking.
