PMPA is proud to announce our new Executive Director, Catherine “Cate” Smith, J.D.. While Smith practiced law, she realized that non-profit was her calling. She served as the Executive Director for The Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity, International and, most recently, the Executive Director for the Education Law Association in Cleveland, Ohio. Her background includes administration, budgeting, marketing, meeting planning and fundraising.  She is excited to re-enter the world of manufacturing -- Smith worked in a steel mill for three summers while in college. 

Smith holds a Juris Doctorate from The Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Dayton.  Smith serves on the City of Elyria Parks and Recreation Board and has held officer positions for the Professional Fraternity Executives Association and chaired committees for the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association.
