AssociationTRENDS has named Dawn Sweeney its 2017 Executive of the Year.

Sweeney, the National Restaurant Association’s President & CEO since 2007, has led the organization through a series of wide-ranging policy issues and increased the number of products and services the Association offers to its members.

During her tenure, Sweeney also has realigned the Association’s priorities and structure to strengthen its core operations, including consolidating its educational foundation around a mission to develop the next generation of foodservice and hospitality leaders.

“Dawn Sweeney embodies what a successful association executive is: a driven professional who is constantly striving for excellence of herself and staff for her industry,” said TRENDS publisher Emily Howard.

In addition to her role at the NRA, Sweeney serves as a board member for the U.S. Travel Association and the Women’s Foodservice Forum. She also is an active member of the International Women’s Forum and a charter member of Child Obesity 180.
