Jenna Wright

Director of Convention Housing


After working in the hotel industry managing events upon college graduation, Jenna has worked for the NABC in some capacity since 1998. First as a volunteer; and then as a consultant, managing convention meetings and events until 2008. While living overseas, she helped with details of the convention that could be managed remotely.

In September 2012, Jenna joined the staff officially as Director or Convention Housing. She is responsible for managing the hotel blocks, rooming lists and hotel waitlists for the convention. She is also the lead contact for the Champions Luncheon; handling invitations and RSVP’s for that special event.

When not in basketball/convention season, Jenna has a specialty cut flower micro-farm and spends all summer outside.

A 1992 graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Hotel and Tourism Management, Jenna resides in Carmel, IN, with her husband, Chip. The couple has three children currently attending college at Purdue, Kent State and Cincinnati.
