Peggy M. Hoffman is president and Mariner’s resident expert on communication, marketing and building community. In addition to managing organizations, Peggy has provided training and consultation on leadership development, component relations and strategic planning to more than a dozen national associations and many local groups over the past 30 years.
From her earlier role at a trade association with components, Peggy developed a commitment to building strong communities within associations. To that end, she has been very involved in ASAE & The Center and is past chair for their Component Relations Section Council and 2013-14 Chair, Executive Management Council. She served on the development team for both the Principles and Advanced Components Relations web-based courses and wrote a chapter in the Components Relations Handbook (2012). She was also involved in ASAE & The Center’s groundbreaking Decision to Volunteer research project and contributed to the book of the same name published in 2008. Peggy was part of the team that helped develop ASAE’s communications certificate program in the early 90’s and taught two of the segments.
She has been a writer and speaker for ASAE & The Center and various other organizations. She is currently on the ASAE University faculty and faciliates the six-week Advanced Component Relations course. With Peter, she has developed and taught several volunteer management courses for the Nonprofit Leadership Development Program at Anne Arundel Community College.
In addition to a BA in Communications from The American University, Peggy is a graduate of the association management curriculum of the Institute for Organization Management at Notre Dame and has worked in the nonprofit arena for more than 30 years. If Peggy wasn’t here, it’s very likely she’d be out training for her next triathlon.
