As NCSEA’s Director, Membership and Engagement, Arlene takes great pleasure in directing and overseeing membership activities for the organization. In collaboration with her brilliant teammates, she works hard to initiate and execute outreach, engagement, and marketing strategies geared towards developing and retaining a robust membership base across all clean energy technologies.

Arlene joins NCSEA with a wide variety of experience in the nonprofit sector and a passion for ensuring others are seen, heard, valued, and understood.

She is also a graduate of the Duke Nonprofit Management Certificate Program, and is a Goodmon Fellow of Leadership Triangle. She recently completed service as the Board Chair of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of the Triangle and supports the organization as an alumna. In her spare time, Arlene enjoys dining out with her husband (while always eating her dessert first), and listening to her father's old vinyl albums.
