Ann Becker and Associates, Inc. has been helping clients integrate meetings, events and programs into overall business strategies for over thirty years. After having provided full-service meeting management for two decades, the firm now focuses predominantly on strategy consulting, specializing in the nonprofit area.
While Ann’s focus has changed from meeting planning to an emphasis on strategy planning, what has not changed is her ability to listen to a client’s ideas and goals and integrate them into a workable plan which not only attains the project goals but advances the mission of the client.
In addition to her consulting, Ann has developed an exciting series of experiential trips to Costa Rica. Her purpose is to provide an in-depth and enriching experience for both tour participants and hosts through cultural, ecological, and volunteer activities, as well as short-term home stays.
Ann is a member of the International Board of Advisors of George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs. She is also a member of the recently established Advisory Board of Costa Rica’s Corcovado Foundation.
Ann holds an M.A. in Science, Technology and Public Policy from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Colorado. She has lived, studied, and worked in Switzerland, France, the Philippines and Costa Rica.
