Terri Alessi-Miceli directs the activities and initiatives for HIA-LI, the recognized voice for business on Long Island and a powerful force and economic engine for regional development. Its member companies represent tens of thousands of business professionals. For over 40 years, the organization has provided a forum for business leaders to network, problem solve, and obtain advice on critical issues facing their businesses.
The organization is headquartered in, and supports, one of the largest industrial parks in the United States. HIA-LI programs and events promote strategic partnerships, targeted networking, information sharing, and business advocacy. It has active committees that provide business programs, services, and events to help its members thrive. Alessi-Miceli, along with the HIA-LI board, has implemented new streams for increased exposure and revenue for the association.
The Association was instrumental in orchestrating the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge’s – formerly the Hauppauge Industrial Park – Connectivity Project to update the technology infrastructure of the industrial park, allowing its companies to compete on a global scale. Under Alessi-Miceli’s leadership, HIA-LI is playing a vital role in Suffolk County’s view of the transportation issues facing the Innovation Park. HIA-LI also hosts the Annual Business Trade Show and Conference, which sets records for business participation and is a major economic engine on Long Island.
Alessi-Miceli had previously served as Managing Director of Dale Carnegie Training for more than 18 years where she was responsible for the profitability and productivity of the instructional and sales team at this premiere corporate education organization.
An honored member of Strathmore’s Who’s Who for 2002-2003, Alessi-Miceli is also a former board member of the Long Island Regional Planning Council, the New York League of Conservation Voters, and the Suffolk County Girl Scout Council. She has been featured in such publications as Newsday, Networking Magazine, Smithtown News, and Long Island Business News and appeared on News 12’s “Jobline” as an expert in organizational change and motivation.
In 2006, she was honored with the Harry Chapin Humanitarian award for HIA-LI’s work with Long Island Cares as the second largest contributor to their annual food drive as well as her personal work with the Dress for Success program, training women in interviewing skills and boosting their self-confidence.
She was twice honored as one of Long Island Business News’ (LIBN) Top 50 Women Professionals on Long Island, earning her a spot in the Hall of Fame.
