Heather is a recognized leader in the b2b community and has been active on both the SIIA (Software & Information Industries Association) and SIPA (Specialized Information Publishers Association) boards, holding leadership positions on both the SIIA board as Treasurer in 2018 and SIPA where she served on the Executive committee from 2015 and served as Chairman in 2017.
