Deborah Jayne to leave SABR staff in November

Deborah JayneOCTOBER 14, 2020 — After serving for nearly a decade as SABR’s award-winning events and membership director, Deborah Jayne will be leaving her role on the SABR staff at the end of November.

Jayne’s leadership in overseeing the logistics planning and management of SABR’s national events — including the Annual Convention, Analytics Conference, and Arizona Fall League Experience — since 2011 has led to record-setting attendance and revenue increases for the organization. Jayne has also held concurrent responsibilities as SABR’s membership director, managing the online member database and helping current and new members navigate their membership experience.

“Deb has been the friendly voice and smiling face greeting our members and has been integral to SABR’s membership experience,” SABR CEO Scott Bush said. “Her enthusiasm for baseball and SABR as an organization will be missed even more than her sizable contributions to SABR’s growth.”

For her efforts in modernizing the SABR conference experience and providing exemplary customer service to thousands of members over the years, Jayne has been recognized by the Senior Planners Industry Network, the Professional Convention Management Association, and Meetings Today. The SABR Analytics Conference, which launched in 2012, has become a must-attend event for the baseball industry  during spring training in Phoenix, while the New York City convention in 2017 drew more than 800 attendees, an all-time high for any event hosted by SABR.
