Meet Our New Events Director, Diana Dudash!

Get acquainted with our new events director, Diana Dudash. Diana was brought on board to improve your member experience by creating special events to entertain, educate and connect you to fellow members and the community. Diana holds a Bachelor of Arts from Ramapo College of New Jersey. Up until now, Diana’s career has been based in New York City. She began in corporate events with a large bank (Lehman Brothers) then transitioned into a travel planner and vacation host for a Destination Club (Quintess).
Diana has been in the events industry longer than you may think. She said “I’ve been the activities director of my group of friends since age 12. I used to take my Mother’s Martha Stewart Living magazines out of the mailbox before she could even read them. Creating experiences for others and with others has always been a passion of mine and something I still find inspiring every day.”
We asked her some questions so you can get to know her better!
How you plan to apply your events background and experience here at the NAC?
I look forward to taking feedback from our members and also being able to anticipate their wants. Where are my foodies, my travelers? Who likes to get into the great outdoors?
What do you like to do in your spare time?  
My husband Josh and I are first time homeowners, so we love to work on our house. We are slightly obsessed. He’s the muscle, I’m the perfectionist. HGTV is always on at my house! We also have a beautiful and sweet Viszla named Hanna, who needs workouts as much as we do! We love to take her to local parks and trails.
Do you have a favorite workout you do?  
I really enjoy Pilates, especially on the reformers at The NAC. It’s challenging but calming, creating a focus that I find therapeutic and restorative.
How do you plan to make lives better?
Successful events and trips are things that people remember in a positive way. Philanthropic efforts are a wonderful way for for everyone involved, to give bacpersons-0106k and create awareness. Great experiences facilitate personal connections, laughter and life long memories. All of these things are extremely rewarding to me.
Do you use Facebook, Instagram or Twitter?
Instagram is so much fun. I’m one of those people who posts pictures of my coffee, my dog and random things that I see every day. Family members always say, yea, your gourmet coffee looks great, but where are YOU? 🙂

    Dear Events Director Diana,

    Hi five to you, Diana, and congratulations on your new career! Of course you’ll bring a new level of success to NAC and take it to new heights! Have a great time.

    So when are you guys going to open “Newtown Athletic Club South”? I leave Saturday (like at 3:00 a.m.) for my new digs in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida and the first thing I plan to do is sign up at a fitness center my sister-in-law found. She says it’s “pretty good”, but really it is just a substitute for a place right across the street from the ocean that closed down due to terrible management. The beautiful building it once occupied now stands empty, just waiting for you guys to come show them how to do it right! It even has a giant pool. Let me know and I’ll take care of the real estate side for you.

    But really, all the best in your new job. It sounds totally you, and totally great.
