Joe Woodard, CEO of the National Advisor Network (NAN), a global organization of over 1200 certified QuickBooks® ProAdvisors, announced today that Mary Longacre, CEO of Custom Accounting Solutions LLC, in Alexandria, VA, has been appointed as Director of Chapter Development for the Atlanta-based organization. Ms. Longacre will spearhead a campaign to double the number of active local NAN Chapters and increase meeting participation.
“We are thrilled to have Mary on board,” says Joe Woodard, Host of National Advisor Network. “Her long term experience as a QuickBooks expert, network member and Network Chapter Leader makes her the perfect person to grow our Network Chapter system.”
Mary Longacre was previously the Chapter Co-Leader for the Northern Virginia local chapter (NAN-NOVA) of the National Advisor Network since 2010. In that capacity, she was responsible for planning educational, networking, and discussion activities for the Chapter’s monthly meetings with Co-Leader Diana Fields, of Fields Bookkeeping Services, Inc ., who will become the sole NAN-NOVA Chapter Leader. In her new position Ms. Longacre will support the network’s national chapter system – with chapters in over 30 states throughout the U.S.
New initiatives will include Leadership Development and Social Media outreach. Ms. Longacre will also design and present the annual Chapter Leader Retreat as part of the Scaling New Heights Conference, June 15-18, 2014 in San Antonio, TX.
“I’m looking forward to drawing on my experience as a successful Chapter Leader to help other NAN Chapters grow and thrive,” Ms. Longacre said. “The connections and shared knowledge that happen in the Chapter meetings have been a real boost to my firm.”
