National Club Association names Wallmeyer President & CEO

Henry Wallmeyer

Henry Wallmeyer has been named president and chief executive officer of the National Club Association, the Washington, D.C.-based trade association serving the private club industry. His role takes effect Sept. 29, 2015.

“Henry will bring innovation, energy and valuable experience to NCA,” NCA Board Chairman Philip R. Kiester said in a news release. “His background in the club industry and association management are a perfect match to NCA’s priorities for the future.”   A seasoned association executive with a background in legislative and regulatory issues, membership and association growth, Wallmeyer joins NCA from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) where he was vice president of membership.

“It’s an honor to return to the private club industry and carry on the great work of Sue Wegrzyn at NCA,” Wallmeyer said in a news release. “I look forward to establishing relationships throughout the industry and working with the NCA team to grow the association’s presence, programs and advocacy for the betterment of the private club industry.”

Prior to the NAM, Wallmeyer was deputy director at the International Parking Institute and served in leadership positions with other associations, including the American Academy of Otolaryngology, the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association and the Club Managers Association of America.

Wallmeyer succeeds Susanne R. Wegrzyn, who announced her retirement last November. Wegrzyn retires from NCA after 22 years, serving as executive vice president and since 2002, as president and CEO.

“As our CEO, Sue not only strengthened NCA’s role as the primary advocate for the private club industry, but also became known as a vital source of information for the club industry,” Kiester remarked. “NCA’s constituent clubs are the ‘best of the best’ and their belief in NCA’s mission under her leadership is a tribute to her sustained efforts on our behalf.”

Established more than 50 years ago, the National Club Association serves as the primary advocate for private clubs, representing their interests on Capitol Hill, in the regulatory agencies, in the statehouses and in the courthouses.
