Amy Cohn recently assumed a national leadership role at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. She was appointed as the museum’s first national annual fund chair.
Amy’s involvement with the museum goes back over 10 years and includes chairing both the Wings of Memory Society and Leadership Circle at the national and regional levels. She and her husband, Andrew, also served as regional co-chairs. Amy traveled with the museum to Europe and led docent training for the “State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda” exhibit at the Burton Barr Central Library in Phoenix in 2015.
As national annual fund chair, Amy works closely with regional chairs in the museum’s five regional offices across the country. She says, “We are in the middle of a capital campaign that ends in 2018, so there’s a strong push throughout the regions to reach that goal. I’m working with regional leadership to amplify the profile of the museum and the work that they’re doing.” She will also focus on increasing the museum’s unrestricted annual funds.
Amy’s volunteer work with another museum, the Phoenix Art Museum, was highlighted in a cover story in the March 2015 issue of Arizona Jewish Life.
