Pat Brown

Vice President of Meetings, DEI, and Services

Pat is a meeting planner with over 20 years of experience and has been a certified meeting professional for 15+ years. From small meetings to international conferences, she has planned various events over the course of her career.

Pat has planned for nonprofits, corporate organizations, special events, and fundraisers and has been with HFA for more than ten years. She oversees all HFA meetings, including the annual Symposium, and also works to implement DEI initiatives for HFA. She manages the Services Team, which includes Helping Hands and Helping Forward.

Pat realizes her “why” every time she attends an in-person HFA event, especially at Symposium. When she arrives on-site at Symposium and sees the learning and networking in action, it makes the many months of planning worth it.
