Cindy York joins ATA as new Director of Finance

ATA President and CEO Mark Colson has announced the recent addition of Cindy York to ATA’s team of association management professionals as Director of Finance and Administration.

Originally from Valdosta, Ga., York graduated high school from Harding Academy in Searcy, Ark. and attended Harding University before moving to Cleveland, Ohio where she worked as a bookkeeper for area real estate and accounting firms. She later returned south, first to Birmingham and then to Montgomery, handling accounting and finance duties for several organizations, including most recently for the Business Council of Alabama where she served 15 years as its Director of Finance.

“Cindy brings significant experience and expertise to our already talented ATA team,” Colson says. “Our Association is blessed that someone of her caliber will be working on behalf of our members.”

York lives in south Montgomery with her husband, Barry, a construction inspector for the Montgomery Water Works, and a 14-year-old rat terrier named Kadey. In their spare time, the Yorks enjoy watching their beloved Auburn Tigers and Cleveland Browns football teams, gardening, traveling, reading and riding motorcycles.

“I am so excited to join ATA, and I look forward to working alongside this talented, experienced and hard-working staff and volunteer leaders,” she says. “Having previously worked with Mark Colson, and knowing his character and work ethic, the decision to come work for this great organization was an easy one, and I am grateful to have this opportunity.”
