Laura J. Wolf, CMM

EMBS Executive Director

Laura, a native New Jerseyite, graduated from the Pennsylvania State University (Go, Lions!) with a B.S. in Hospitality Management. After working in hotel sales for a number of years, in 1994, she began her career at IEEE in the Meeting Planning Services Department. In January 1999, Laura was hired by EMBS as its Technical Activities Manager and was later promoted to Executive Director in 2000.

As Executive Director, Laura oversees the daily activities of the Society and interfaces with IEEE. Laura's life is currently run (not in any particular order) by EMBS President, IEEE, her daughter Loralei and her 2 dogs, Sirius and Echo.

Jessica Lotito, CMP

Manager, Conference Services

Jessica has been with IEEE since 2005 and joined EMBS in 2011.  In January 2009, she earned her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation, a premier industry certification.

Jessica received her A.S. in Travel and Tourism Management in 1998, and her B.S. in Hospitality Management in 2000, both from Johnson & Wales University. Upon graduation Jessica started off her career in the hotel industry, which gave her an insider’s perspective when negotiating contracts with hotels and developing the conference program.  

Since joining IEEE, Jessica has worked on domestic and international conferences with attendance ranging in size from 200 to 10,000 attendees.  Her position at EMBS entails working closely with volunteers to ensure successful conferences.  Some of her functions include, paper management, conference logistics, contract negotiations and other special EMBS projects.

Alicia Tomaszewski

Senior Administrator,  Society Services

Alicia worked at IEEE for 15 years in the Society/Council General Activities Group within the Technical Activities Department after receiving her A.S in Business Administration from Middlesex County College. Her past responsibilities included coordinating Society elections (she used to do EMBS elections), coordinating the production of society awards, the creation of the online Society roster, SAMIEEE staff liaison for volunteers, and coordination of Society information for the renewal process (including preparing the brochures, the online renewal website, and the renewal forms).

In the 7 years that Alicia was gone from the IEEE, she was home pursuing a degree in teaching, life became a roller coaster! When she left IEEE, Laura gave her a stash of EMBS "stuff" and asked her if she was "sure" this was what she wanted to do, as Laura wasn't quite convinced Alicia would like it. As usual, Laura is always right (annoying isn’t it?!!), she pegged that Alicia would not like teaching. Then came the good surprise of adding her son Mitchell, to her family of 2 young daughters. Happily, she is back with IEEE in EMBS and is using her experience and contacts to handle all membership, chapter outreaches and funding requests (including student branches and clubs) and additional society services asked for by Laura and will help promote EMBS via the Society Conference Exhibition Program.  She now knows to listen to Laura’s advice more often!

In her spare time, she is running with her 3 kids between field hockey, lacrosse and swimming events.
