Gore started at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) in 2008 as the Director of Meetings and Conventions after serving on the supplier side of the industry for more than 25 years.

Prior to joining APTA, Gore worked for San Diego Convention Center, IEP (now PRG), GES, the Washington D.C. Convention and Visitors Bureau, and both Renaissance and Hilton Hotels.

With more than 30 years of industry experience, Gore has been a dedicated IAEE member for over 25 of those years.

She also served on the IAEE Services Board of Directors for many years, including a term as chairperson. Gore is also in the HSMAI DC Hall of Fame and won IAEE’s Distinguished Service Award in 2009.

“I’ve worked with Lenay in her volunteer leadership roles over the past 20 years and have always been impressed with how she can hone in on what’s being discussed and provide her perspective,” noted IAEE Executive Vice President and COO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE, CEM. “When she agrees to do something, she is all in. She is deserving of this award and I wish her all the best as she transitions into retirement.”
