Stacey has served on the board of the Technology and Manufacturing Association (TMA) and is a current board member of the Chicago Midwest chapter of the National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) and the Chicago Surface Finishing Foundation.

On a local level, Stacey is a charter member of the Downers Grove Kiwanis Club.
