Since our beginnings in 1998, our number one goal was to provide the finest management services to state, regional, and national associations. Our determination to set us apart from our competitors helped us develop a reputation as turn-around specialists through the breakthrough creativity and sound strategic advice of its Chief Staff Executive Management team.
Under the leadership of Partners, associations have prospered. Some organizations have doubled and tripled their membership, while others, having joined Partners in dire financial straights, have met or exceeded their long term reserve objectives. Still others have created new programs that invigorate their industry and position them as the top organization in their industry or profession.
Partners company philosophy calls for an association to be run like a business with the expectation of a return on investment, strength of the balance sheet and adherence to the budget as the guiding forces. This same philosophy also supports the idea that satisfied members make profitable and relevant associations. We thrive on creating effective management programs, providing strategic counsel and high quality member communications for associations.

for financial security - We made recommendations on expense reductions and revenue enhancements to yield more than a quarter million dollars in reserves in 16 months.
decline in its candidate testing - We recommended out-of-the-box thinking that provided new testing methods, leading to a doubling of the test candidates in 12 months.
We devised a marketing plan that resulted in increased revenues of 35% over four years. Attendance soared from 500 to over 800 attendees from around the world during that time period, and the meeting has become one of the industry's largest displays of products and services.
