Talk: Joan Cuneo - a racing hero who paved the way for other women

Speaker: Jackie Frady

Jackie Frady is president and executive director of the National Automobile Museum. She has been labeled many things, including a "car guy." However, she is most proud of being recognized for moving the "automobile museum industry forward as a leader, a professional, and as a woman who helped pave the way for other ladies -- in an industry once driven by men," as reported by KRNV News.

Jackie is an honorary judge at the Pebble Beach and Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance and serves on the Advisory Board of the Ironstone Concours. In 2015, she was named a Top Ten Business Woman of the American Business Women's Association. This national award is the highest honor given to a member for career accomplishments, community involvement, and contributions to ABWA. She has been actively involved with the National Association of Automobile Museums since its inception in 1994, and serves on the Board of Directors and has been president several times. She is also past president of the Nevada Museums Association.
