Wendy King joined the RGI team in 2020. She brings her 10+ years of association experience and previous background in marketing, development and events to her role as Executive Director.
Wendy enjoys working in association management because it gives her the opportunity to provide tools, resources and new opportunities that can help small businesses thrive in a challenging market. She also enjoys working closely with volunteer leaders to help bring their visions to life. Her strengths include developing strategic relationships, building collaborative environments, strategic planning with measurable goals and fostering strong boards through leadership development.
Her volunteer involvement includes athlete recruitment and marketing for the World Police & Fire Games. The World Police and Fire Games are an Olympic-style competition with 10,000 athletes representing law enforcement, firefighters, and officers from corrections, probation and border protection from 70+ countries across the world competing in 60+ sports.
In her spare time, Wendy loves traveling – everything from day trips to international adventures. Her proudest moment is spending eight hours traversing the Great Wall of China with her husband, Jim. While at home, Wendy considers herself an HGTV and DIY junkie. She also loves spending time with her four beautiful grandchildren.
