Amy Eisenberg joined the Bayfront Maritime Center staff in 2004 as the Executive Assistant. For the past 12-1/2 years Amy has managed the finances and business matters for BMC. Managing a mid-size nonprofit requires wearing many hats, so, in addition to her fiscal responsibilities, Amy helps with development including grant writing and reporting, web site and social media updates, fundraising, events, and correspondence. Amy worked part-time at The Nonprofit Partnership for eight years and accredits most of her nonprofit management skills to the expert training of past NPP director, Robert Wooler, and the myriad of training sessions she attended over the years. Amy has been sailing with her husband, Rich Eisenberg, since they first met at Allegheny College. Their adventures continued as they traveled through Europe, Mexico, and throughout most of the 50 United States. Since making Erie her home, Amy is pleased to be able to give back to the community and strives everyday to make BMC the best possible nonprofit organization.
