CBALogo-webCBA has announced two management changes with Charles “Chuck” Steinert Jr. taking the newly created position of operations director, and Patrice Ravenscroft being promoted to events manager. Effective April 24, Steinert will assume oversight of duties long held by Events Manager Scott Graham, who is leaving to take a position with the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association as national trade show director.

“In our efforts to further the work of Christian-product providers, Scott Graham has set strong standards,” CBA President Curtis Riskey said. “Just as we’re grateful for the foundation and friendship with Scott, we’re excited for the new vision coming in with Chuck Steinert.”

Riskey said CBA’s June 22-25 International Christian Retail Show in Atlanta will bring new elements in training, especially looking forward to the future of Christian stores and the changing dynamics of faith that impact developers and providers of Christian resources.

Steinert is the former executive director of Life Promotions, the nonprofit organization behind Lifest, one of the nation’s largest music festivals with more than 150 performers across five stages and as many as 75,000 attendees annually. His tenure covered strategic planning, program development, financial management, fundraising, marketing, communications and administration. 

Ravenscroft, CBA’s former program coordinator, previously was sales manager for a Wyndham Grand Hotel, handling event sales and planning for international delegations, professional sports associations and national corporations. She has worked in for-profit and nonprofit fundraising and event planning.
