Josh Goldman, CAE, is an accomplished association professional with over 15 years of experience in directing, managing, designing, and evaluating education and training programs.
In 2014, Josh joined the Ohio Society of CPAs, where he now serves as the vice president of learning, leading enterprise-wide strategy, direction, and execution of the association’s learning pillar delivered through numerous channels, programs, services, and partnerships, all designed to maximize value. In 2015 OSCPA received the Bronze award in the Educational Program category from the TRENDS 2015 All Media Content for the association’s microlearning program, Quick Bytes. The association has gained national attention for its work to advance learning in the profession.
Prior to joining OSCPA, Josh has held senior positions in local, state, regional, national, and international membership associations and nonprofits with oversight of portfolios including program development, membership, component relations, partner/business development, education, competency, credentialing, and standards development, and international market development. From 2006 to 2012, he was the project manager for the initiatives which defined the core competencies for campus housing professionals and created two credentialing programs, one of his most fulfilling association leadership roles. He has survived two learning management system (LMS) selections and implementations, two membership structure changes, and two significant association management system (AMS) projects and believes there are more, but his psyche has suppressed the memories as a survival response.
Josh has a B.S. in psychology from Indiana State University and an M.A. in college student personnel (higher education administration) from Bowling Green State University. He earned his Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential from the American Society of Association Executives. He has authored book chapters on developing a body of knowledge, professional development planning, and learning from the mistakes of others when enhancing learning experiences.
