Nancy Hawthorne, senior manager of conference projects, wears many different hats in her role with ISTE. She manages event sponsorship fulfillment, serves as liaison to ISTE’s exhibits program and project manages information and communication vehicles across all events, including printed collateral, attendee maps, signage and décor.
