Barry Liben (In Memoriam)

    Barry, along with his family, has been a member of the NSA since 1998. Barry’s primary focus was in securing the financial stability of the NSA and fundraising, enabling more energy to be used for outreach, education and support. The Alvin Liben Fund, created in memory of Barry’s father in 2005, has raised almost $500,000 since its inception. These funds are used for scholarships for families who would otherwise be unable to attend the Annual Conference and for special projects and NSA initiatives. Additionally, Barry was been instrumental in ensuring that our Annual Conference live auctions are successful. Barry served as Chairman of Tzell Travel/Travel Leaders Group, an international travel management company with headquarters in New York City.

    Barry lived in Manhattan his wife Sindy, and often found his home filled with his 3 beautiful children and their spouses and his 7 amazing grandkids.

    Barry passed away on January 2, 2020 after a long illness.
