TAM Executive Leaders (TAMEL) Affinity Group Welcomes New Chair

TAM Blog,

Join us in welcoming Karen Stevenson, Director of the National Museum of the Pacific War, as the new Chair of the TAM Executive Leaders (TAMEL) Affinity Group!


Karen Stevenson began her tenure at NMPW in 2019 managing Visitor Services staff, docents, and volunteers. Building on a foundation of marketing, fundraising, interpretive planning, and managerial experiences in the mission-driven non-profit sector (especially with 501c3s dedicated to cultural and natural history and conservative initiatives), Stevenson focuses on integrating archival, curatorial, and educational programming to bring a visitor-centric perspective to the stories that help connect us all to the stories of World War II in the Pacific Theater.


Stevenson earned her bachelor’s degree in Park Administration, Landscape Architecture & Horticulture from Texas Tech University and an American History MA/ABT from Portland State University. She currently serves on the boards of the Astronaut Memorial Foundation/Center for Space Education in Space Center, FL and several local non-profit organizations.

Thank you for jumping onboard, Karen! The TAM Community looks forward to working with you in this new capacity.
