Leah Sweet – Association Manager

About This Project

Prior to joining Jaffe Management in 2015, Leah spent 20 years serving nonprofit sectors of Colorado, Arizona and Minnesota in executive leadership, program development and management, health education and legislative policy. Nearly all of her work, including serving as a board member and volunteer herself, has involved volunteer management and engagement.


Leah began her career as a full-time VIDA Volunteer in rural Colorado. Although she does not volunteer as frequently as she would like, Leah sometimes sneaks away from the office to volunteer at her sons’ school and pitches in on nonprofit events and projects whenever possible. A life-long joiner, Leah loves managing membership groups and is a member of many organizations herself, including the Associations North, the Florida Society of Association Executives (FSAE), the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), Minnesota Public Radio, Minnesota Distance Running Association, the Seward Coop, the YMCA, the Science Museum of Minnesota and of course, her local library.


Leah graduated Summa Cum Laude from the College of St. Benedict and she received her Master of Arts from St. Mary’s University in Human Development with an emphasis in Nonprofit Management. She has a certificate in Association Management from ASAE, has completed the FSAE Qualified Association Specialist program.
