Michele Morgan – EMPOWER Conference Speaker

Executive Director, NiUG International

Presentation: Productivity and Efficiency Even in a Remote Work Environment

Statistics report a significant increase in productivity while working from home, but how? Kids are crying, dirty clothes need to be washed, there is a sink full of dishes, and there is no food in the house! How can you think about work with so much on your mind? Join Michele as she shows us how to be more productive with her methods, tips, and tools to help you meet deadlines and not be sidetracked by life.


In association management for over 25 years, Michele began her career first with a trade association – the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) – and then as an association manager and executive director of NiUG International. Little did Michele know her career at NKBA would give her the foundation needed to run NiUG International.   

Michele worked in a hands-on environment within several areas of the business, including; meeting/conference planning, membership, production, accounting, customer service, marketing, database management, reporting/analytics, and content/website management before becoming the Assistant Director of Operations. All of that experience and motivation, as well as her move to learning more about database management, set her up to become the first employee of NiUG International, as their association manager and then executive director beginning in 2004 where she continues to run the company today. Needless to say, association management has NEVER been a dull moment and she continues to learn as she wears the many hats needed as the ED!

She truly enjoys what she does, but when not working, she fulfills her role as a mother of three amazing boys (now men) and a grandmother of seven beautiful grandchildren!  Life is a blessing, be thankful for what you have and never take it for granted! And always remember… you are in charge of your own destiny, so dream big and work hard!
