communications consultant
• Julie Massaro, owner of JBM Business Solutions, as member services consultant

• Jessica Schaller, principal, The Accounting Resource, LLC, as bookkeeper
• Barb Ilyes, president, Go Figure Inc., as accountant
• Hilary Morgan, senior associate, Trent Cotney Construction Law Group, as general counsel

“We’ve been successful getting started because of the amazing support provided by our volunteer members, who serve on various committees and give their time to keep the organization moving and growing,” explained Ellsworth. “We will continue to have working committees who contribute to the growth and success of NWIR and should see even more positive traction now that we have this strong team of staff members to support us.”
