Steve Schuldenfrei, Past President

Steve retired to Tucson after a 30 year career in association and trade show management.  He was born in New York City but escaped to New Jersey at six weeks old. He abandoned central New Jersey to attend The American University in Washington DC.

He likes to say that he got the biblical story a bit backwards. He spent precisely 40 years in Boston, Washington DC, Chicago and Los Angeles AND NOW he is wandering in the desert.

Steve earned a BS in Marketing (he says that it is an appropriate set of initials for that discipline) and an MBA in Public Relations and Association Management.

Steve is married to Joan (approaching the 50-year mark) and has two children and two granddaughters.

Steve’s has interests in genealogy and photography. He can trace his direct family line back to Abraham. Unfortunately not THAT Abraham! It’s Abraham Schuldenfrei born in Krakow (now Poland) in 1798.

His collection of photographs (mostly now digital) amounts to a collection of about 100,000 pictures.
