Jay Younger, FASAE
Managing Partner & Chief Consultant
202.333.6250 ext. 303
We can’t help but notice that Jay’s reputation often precedes him. It has to do with his uncanny ability to advance Board and staff relationships, his constant state of calm, his skill in crunching numbers on the most complex spreadsheets, and the rumor that he can keep up with the best of them at late night ASAE events. Back in the office, Jay is the Managing Partner and Chief Consultant who makes sure that McKinley is one of the best places his employees have ever worked while earning the loyalty of his clients who seek his guidance again and again.
During his 14 years at McKinley, he has successfully managed hundreds of projects, with a particular focus on association strategy, governance, membership, organizational development, and branding. At home, Jay is the quintessential family man, trading in his golf clubs for his kids’ ballet recitals, trips to the playground and countless early mornings. He pretends he’s staying in shape by commuting to McKinley on his road bike whenever his schedule allows.
Jay is an ASAE Fellow, and served on its Membership Section Council from 1999-2005, with a stint as chair in 2004-2005. Jay is a frequent presenter, author and contributor to a wide range of industry events and publications. A native Washingtonian, Jay holds a BA in English from Duke University.
