Carolyn Dorf

Senior Events Associate

About Carolyn

“Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.” – E.B. White

Carolyn loves to see an event come to life! With seven years of association and non-profit event management experience, she knows how to take an event from an idea to a full-blown experience. A self-styled task master, Carolyn has a natural tendency for organization and a can-do attitude.

Before joining Collaborative, Carolyn worked as the Events and Communications Manager at the Energy Solutions Center. There she was responsible for planning and executing the Center’s virtual and in-person conferences across the United States.

Prior to that, Carolyn was the Events Manager at the Eno Center for Transportation, where she primarily planned leadership training for transit agencies throughout the United States and Canada. While at Eno, Carolyn was the lead logistical manager for a delegation of U.S. city department of transportation professionals who traveled abroad to learn best practices from the London and Stockholm city governments.

Carolyn holds a B.A. in Political Science from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. In January 2020, she became a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP).
