Ryan Felps is the co-founder and President of StarChapter. An entrepreneur at heart, he began StarChapter as an attempt to solve serious problems local chapters face in regards to maintaining a website, handling emails, member data and event registration. As a ‘webmaster’ for a local chapter, Ryan saw firsthand what struggles volunteers face. He is involved in shaping the company culture, application design, sales and marketing. Ryan has spoken at many national association conferences sharing insights and information learned from many years of association management involvement. A Baltimore native and city resident, Ryan enjoys racing sailboats in the harbor and dreams of one day cruising his own sail boat to far off destinations with his wife and four children.
