TMA says Besore has established a solid career of success representing national associations and members, nurturing key alliances, and influencing and inspiring change through advocacy, education, and professional opportunities.

Besore was previously executive director of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses as well as a former member of the board of directors of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). She currently serves as TMA’s vice president of Membership and Programs and previously worked at the association as vice president of Marketing and Communications.

“Frankly, choosing Celia to lead TMA was an easy choice,” said TMA President Ivan Spector in a prepared statement. “Throughout the years that I have known her, she has been a tireless advocate for the association. Her energy, passion and enthusiasm for the industry will spur TMA to grow to the next level in a rapidly changing landscape.”

Besore is the first woman to lead The Monitoring Association staff as executive director, and she will assume her new position on Nov. 1, following the retirement of Executive Director Jay Hauhn on Oct. 31.


Besore said in a statement, “I love our industry and the critical role it plays in the well-being of our communities. I greatly admire our members and look forward to working with the board, our many volunteers, and my staff colleagues on TMA’s mission to advance the professional monitoring industry.”
