More than 30 years ago, Betsy responded to a classified ad in the newspaper for something called an “association management company,” and she has been in the association management field ever since! Betsy has worked for associations of various sizes (100 to thousands of members) and scopes (local, state, national and international). She joined the staff of the Tennessee Bar Association in 1993 as the Young Lawyers Division Director. Ten years later, she was hired as the Executive Director of the Tennessee Society of Association Executives.
Besty currently serves as Sr. Association Director at Oak Ridge Association Managment Company. Volunteer leaders know their own trade or profession better than anyone. Betsy works with boards to set their long-term vision and transforms that vision into a reality. She has the experience and skills to help association elected leaders fulfill their mission, vision and values.
Since 1999, Betsy has been certified by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) as a Certified Association Executive (CAE), the highest honor of professional achievement available from ASAE. Betsy has been married to her husband Mitchell for nearly 27 years. Together they have three children, Harrison, 24, Hayden, 22 and Lydia, 13. Betsy loves to read in her free time.
Annette Miller currently serves as Conference and Association Manager at Oak Ridge AMC.
Before joining Oak Ridge in 2018, Annette worked in Nashville’s legal community for nearly 25 years, with more than 15 at the Nashville Bar Association and 9 at the Tennessee Bar Foundation. Her work at the NBA involved typical association management, including event planning, membership, continuing education, and board/committee/volunteer management for multiple entities. Annette always enjoyed the variety of the work at the NBA and interaction with the members on a regular basis. At TBF, a grant-making entity which oversees one facet of attorney licensure, Annette worked with attorneys and with nearly 200 banks across the state.
Annette was born and raised in Virginia and attended Trevecca Nazarene College (now University) in Nashville. She fell in love with the city and stayed in Nashville after college. Her hobbies are reading and collecting recipes (only a few of which she ever uses— although she loves to cook). She is married to her husband Paul, and between them they have three wonderful children.
