National Turkey Federation (NTF) President Joel Brandenberger announced the appointment today of Jennifer Zukowski as the federation’s new director of member services.


“Zukowski’s history in event planning and fundraising – and her proven ability to perform in high-pressure situations – makes her the right candidate to oversee the federation’s membership department,” said Brandenberger.

As director of member services, Zukowski will conduct activities designed to ensure maximum delivery of benefits to the existing member base and to attract new members to the federation. Some of these activities include the planning and execution of NTF’s two major events: the Annual Convention and the Leadership Conference.

Zukowski comes to NTF from Woodward Communications where she has been serving as a meeting planner for the firm’s clients. Prior to that, she held positions with a national political action committee, the 2004 Democratic National Convention and the Florida Victory 2004 campaign.

Zukowski holds a B.A. in political science from Elon University in Elon, N.C.
