In his White House Conference position, he analyzed the federal service delivery system as related to disabled citizens and worked with Congress on issues of special concern to disabled individuals, including full implementation of P.L. 94-142 (Education of Disabled Children), and section 504 of the 1974 Rehabilitation Act that insures access for the disabled.
Mr. Rosenstein then entered the association field as Executive Director of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and Physician Assistant Programs, and worked as a private consultant in the areas of management, conference planning and financial management for associations. Most recently he was Executive Director of Accountants for the Public Interest, an association whose mission is to provide financial services to businesses, individuals and small non-profits who need those services but cannot afford to pay for them.
Mr. Rosenstein is active in the Association community and is a member of the American Society of Association Executives and the Greater Washington Society of Association Executives. He served as a member of the Mayor's Committee on the Image of Washington and is on the Board of Directors of the Capital Area Professional Convention Management Association.
