The Poultry Science Association Announces New Executive Director

PSA is pleased to announce that Ms. Jacelyn Hemmelgarn will be assuming the role of Executive Director of the Poultry Science Association on February 4th, 2019.

Jacelyn comes to PSA with over 17 years of experience in Association management, having most recently served as the Chief Operations Officer for the American Society of Animal Science since 2011. Her experience serving in this most recent role provides a rather unique set of strategic, operational and management skills that are particularly applicable to the role of Executive Director for PSA. With a proven track record of developing successful projects and programs in volunteer-driven organizations, the PSA Board is excited about the opportunity to work with Jacelyn to lead the Association in pursuit of its vision to be the global resource for poultry sciences.

In her role as the Executive Director, Jacelyn will report directly to the Board of Directors and be responsible for the planning, directing and insuring the effective implementation of all strategic, financial and operational affairs of PSA.

Jacelyn will be based at the PSA headquarters in Champaign, Illinois and can be contacted by email at or by phone at 217-356-5285.

Please join with us in welcoming Jacelyn to the Poultry Science Association.
