CoreNet New England Board of Directors Announcement


October 1, 2017
- CoreNet New England and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce and welcome Trish Fields to serve as the Executive Director effective October 1, 2017. Trish is the Principal and Owner of Fields Associates, LLC, a boutique consulting and association management firm, and she has a history of stellar work in managing professional and trade organizations. Trish will be working with Carol over the next several months to transition the responsibilities of this critical role. This is not the first, nor the last opportunity, to thank Carol for all that she has done for this Chapter and the tremendous success it has experienced over the last 20 years. Carol’s indelible mark is, and continues to be, felt by our Board and the membership and we are eternally grateful for her commitment and service to this organization. 

Trish’s experience includes serving as Co-Founder and Vice President of State Partnerships and Strategic Engagement at Advanced Energy Economy and the Advanced Energy Economy Institute, a national trade association and sister nonprofit organization focused on clean energy policy advocacy, research and education. While at AEE / AEEI, Trish led the organization’s efforts to expand its state presence and worked with AEE business members to launch other programs in states not represented. Trish was also part of a small team who successfully raised multiple five- and six-figure grants from numerous private foundations to support work in various states around the country including the New England region.

Prior to her role with AEE / AEEI, Trish was Co-Founder and Vice President of Operations and Membership at the New England Clean Energy Council (now known as the Northeast Clean Energy Council) and the NECEC Institute, a trade association and sister nonprofit organization focused on building the clean energy economy across New England. Trish led NECEC’s efforts to grow the business membership and sponsorship base dramatically over five years. While at NECEC / NECECI, Trish was responsible for membership, sponsorship, events (including NECEC’s annual signature fundraising event, the “Green Tie Gala”), finance, operations and fundraising activities for the two organizations.

Prior to NECEC / NECECI, Trish held various positions with General Catalyst Partners, a venture capital firm with offices in Cambridge, MA, and as a finance and operations Department of Defense contractor for the U.S. Air Force. Trish has a Bachelors in Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and is currently enrolled in a Masters of Science in Nonprofit Management degree program at Northeastern University.

Please welcome Trish to the New England Chapter of CoreNet Global!
