AIS is excited to announce Melissa Heeke as the new Membership Director. Melissa joins AIS with more than 15 years of association management experience. She served as president of the Indiana Society of Association Executives and Chair of American Society of Association Executives’, Small Staff Associations Advisory Committee.

For the last six years, Heeke has been the Membership Director at Midwest Political Science Association where she led the strategy for creating and implementing membership programs and services to political science professors, graduate students and researchers. In addition to being a Certified Association Executive (CAE), she has a bachelor’s degree in Communications & Public Relations and a master’s degree in Leadership Development.

Continuing to enhance the membership value with AIS is one of the association's highest priorities.  In recent years AIS has accomplished this through adding more journals and content in the eLibrary, expanding career and placement services and offering new AIS membership packages to better fit global and growing member needs.

“I am delighted by the diversity among the AIS membership and look forward to supporting this global network of information systems professionals,” said Heeke. “I especially look forward to helping connect AIS members with each other by strengthening the AIS Communities program.”

Heeke will work with several members of AIS Council and staff to continue the growth of the organization and its benefits. To reach Heeke, please email her at
